UK: 2012 Toyota Prius Plug-in promises 134mpg

Toyota has announced the official EU emissions and economy figures for its new 2012 Prius Plug-in Hybrid. Prepare to be impressed.

The Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid is exactly what it sounds like – a version of the Prius that you can plug into the mains to charge the batteries. This gives it a new electric-only range of some 15.5 miles, a vast improvement over the 1.5 miles of the regular version.

As a result, the EU has awarded the car a combined cycle fuel economy rating of 134.5mpg with just 49g/km CO2 emissions.

Now, you might say so what – Volvo’s shown the same results with the considerably larger V60 Plug-in Hybrid. But the Prius’s batteries are fully charged in just 90 minutes using a regular plug socket, and with the current Government electric car grant it’s set to go on sale for less than £30,000.
