Canada: Plug-In Prius Wins Montreal Alternative Energy Rallye

For the third straight year, the Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid (PHV) was victorious in the Rallye Vert de Montréal.

The world championship of “green” rallies is the only Canadian stop on the global FIA Alternative Energies Cup circuit.

The PHV, with its unique Hybrid Synergy Drive platform, placed first in fuel consumption, with only 19L of fuel used for the 530 km of rallying, or average fuel efficiency of 3.6L/100 km. As an additional highlight for the Toyota family, the Lexus CT 200h recorded the second-best efficiency, at 4.3L/100 km.

The PHV was also first in regularity (speed accuracy). A key element of winning the rally is a combination of the consumption and regularity rankings. By placing first in both categories the PHV was the rally’s decisive winner, and with the CT200h placing a strong second.
