LA 2009: 2010 Toyota Plug-in Hybrid Debuts

has taken the wraps off the 2010 Prius Plug-in Hybrid, is debuting at the LA Auto Show. The Plug-in Hybrid is based on the Prius and features the introduction of a generation lithium-ion battery. the battery is fully charged the is capable of going up to 13 miles on power alone and reaching up to 60 mph in mode.

On longer trips the PHV reverts to hybrid mode and like a regular Prius.

this month 350 Prius hybrids will begin in Japan and Europe in support of programs with business and partners aimed at raising awareness of, and preparedness for, important new technology. Early year 150 vehicles will in the U.S. where they be given to select partners for and demonstrations.

This program is a first step in societal in that it allows us the unique to inform, educate and prepare for the introduction of plug-in hybrid said Irv Miller, TMS group president, environmental and public When these vehicles to market, customers must what to expect and if this is the right fit for them.

PRESS RELEASE:

2010 Plug-in Hybrid Makes American Debut at Los Angeles Show

Global Demonstration Starts this Month in

Assembly Line Production of 500 Batteries Begins

TORRANCE, December 2, 2009 — The Toyota Prius Plug-in vehicle (PHV) will it’s North American today at the Los Angeles Auto

Built specifically to support a demonstration program that this month, the Prius PHV is on the third-generation Prius. The vehicle Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy technology with the introduction of a generation lithium-ion battery enables all-electric operation at speeds and longer distances the conventional Prius hybrid. fully charged, the vehicle is to achieve a maximum electric-only of approximately 13 miles and will be of achieving highway speeds up to 60 mph in mode.

For longer distances, the Prius PHV to hybrid mode and operates a regular Prius. This to utilize all-electric power for trips or hybrid power for drives alleviates the issue of cruising range encountered pure electric vehicles.

later this month, a of 350 vehicles will begin in Japan and Europe in support of programs with business and partners aimed at raising awareness of, and preparedness for, important new technology.

Beginning next year, 150 vehicles start arriving in the U.S. they will be placed in clusters with select for market/consumer analysis and technical

On the consumer side, the U.S. will allow Toyota to real world vehicle-use to better understand customer for plug-in technology. On the technical the program aims to confirm, in a variety of real world the overall performance of first-generation battery technology, while the development of public-access charging infrastructure.

All vehicles will be equipped data retrieval devices will monitor activities as how often the vehicle is charged and whether the batteries are depleted or topped off during charging; duration, all-EV driving combined mpg and so on.

This program is a first step in societal in that it allows us the unique to inform, educate and prepare for the introduction of plug-in hybrid said Irv Miller, TMS group president, environmental and public When these vehicles to market, customers must what to expect and if this is the right fit for them.

In October, announced its first regional partnership with Xcel SmartGridCity program in Boulder, Ten PHVs will be placed Boulder residents who will in an interdisciplinary research project by the University of Colorado at Boulder and Sustainable Energy Institute a new joint venture between the Department of Energy’s National Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the of Colorado at Boulder.

RASEI, Xcel Energy and TMS use this program to gather on vehicle performance and charging consumer behavior and preferences, as as electric utility/customer interactions. The offers the additional benefit of high altitude, cold performance of Toyota’s first lithium-ion battery.

Additional will be announced soon. programs are currently slated for Washington D.C. New York, and Pennsylvania.

Each placement will have a variety of cases’ or driving conditions to maximum input to vehicle and customer needs.

To assist customer education, Toyota has a PHV demonstration program website www.priusphv.com. At the site, visitors can more about the technology, the program’s progress and, the vehicles are deployed, track the of the demonstration program fleet. transparent communication of vehicle and real world data allow customers to make decisions when considering the of a plug-in hybrid vehicle.

All About The Battery

The battery powering the Prius PHV is the lithium-ion drive-battery developed by and its joint venture battery company, Panasonic Electric Energy (PEVE). In early PEVE began producing the of more than 500 lithium on a dedicated assembly line at its production facility in Japan.

is the world’s leading producer of hydride batteries for automotive applications, having surpassed two units in total production Nickel-metal batteries are ideal for producing affordable conventional vehicles due to their low cost, quality, high reliability and charge-sustaining operation. Lithium-ion on the other hand, are more for pure electric and plug-in applications which require energy density to meet the demands of charge-depleting operation swings in charge/discharge).

And, lithium-ion batteries are less in terms of materials, they are expensive than nickel-metal in of production costs.

This lithium battery has undergone than three years of field testing in Japan, America and Europe in a wide of climatic environments and driving Using approximately 150 conventional (mostly Prius), the field vehicles logged well a million combined miles. In the the battery was deemed both and durable, confirming that it indeed be used in conventional applications in the future, depending on developments in cost reduction.

The battery will now be placed service in the 500 Prius PHVs to Toyota’s global demonstration which begins in December. in a more severe charge-depleting the battery’s overall performance in a range of vehicle-use applications be confirmed.
