Toyota Plug-In Hybrid Wins Green Rally

The Toyota Plug-in Hybrid has won the Canadian Rallye Vert de Montréal again. Is Toyota getting serious about racing its plug-in hybrids?

Toyota is racing its plug-in hybrids, PHEV and the Prius PHEV just won the Rallye Vert de Montréal for the third year in a row. Now most of us expect green rallies to be won by Tesla or souped up version of the Nissan Leaf and Mitsubishi’s i MiEV but this Toyota Prius PHEV won the Alternative Energies Cup tour.

Toyota Green Racing. Toyota is big in the racing scene with its Indy cars and other sports prototype but all use its gasoline technology, even if it is bringing out hybrids in endurance race. Still, we don’t automatically think of its Prius as a racing candidate. Even if a some of us have seen a few Prii impress us on highways zipping in and out of lanes, the car is not necessarily known for its stellar handling. All things to the contrary, the PHEV did place first in fuel consumption having sipped only 50.1 gallons of fuel on the 329.32 miles of race. This gave the racing Prius PHEV an average fuel efficiency of 65.33 MPG while racing.
