Toyota Prius Plug-in in Perth and Dundee
Meet the most efficient Toyota Prius ever made. The Prius Plug-in has a 34 mile electric range and returns 188.3 to 235.4 mpg combined. It’s powered by a 1.8 petrol engine with dual electric motors powered by an 8.8 kWh battery pack. There are switchable HV, EV and EC City drive modes to change how the car is powered, and thanks to an automatic gearbox, the driving experience is sublime. You’re going to love it.
Two trim levels are available: Business Edition Plus and Excel. Business Edition Plus models have Smart Entry and Push-button Start, a reversing camera and wireless charging. Excel models add Simple Intelligent Park Assist, front and rear parking sensors and a JBL Premium Sound System. All models have Adaptive LED headlights and a complete safety suite, including Lane Trace Assist and Full-range Adaptive Cruise Control.
The Prius Plug-in rides on lightweight 15” bi-tone alloy wheels and looks the part with Adaptive LED headlights and LED rear lights. It looks every bit as premium as it is efficient, with a high-tech cabin with smartphone integration.
With a 34 mile EV range, short journeys can be completed without using any petrol. The charge time is 4hrs using a 3 pin socket. The drive is smooth, refined and fun, with instant torque from the dual electric motors providing lots of grunt.
Because it has a larger battery pack than the regular Prius, the Prius Plug-in has a smaller 360-litre boot. However, it’s still plenty big. You can split-fold the rear seats 60-40 and there are ISOFIX points on both rear outermost seats.
Living with it
Excel models have plush leather upholstery and Simple Intelligent Park Assist which can steer into parking spaces for you. All models have a 7” touchscreen with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto and an 8” digital driver’s display.
