Toyota Prius Plug-in

Now that Toyota’s plug-in development is no longer a secret, the is putting plug-in prototypes on the in Japan and California to further the technology. The Toyota Plug-in HV, a platform based on the production Prius, has been approved for road use by Japan’s Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport – the first of its kind. Toyota will eight vehicles in Japan to the electric-only cruising range and battery capacity.

The Prius is based on a third generation Prius (model ZVW30) with 5.2 kWh lithium-ion batteries with Panasonic,which enable operation at higher speeds and distances than the conventional hybrid.

The Prius plug-in all-electric range is 13 mi with speeds up to 62 mph lithium-ion battery pack can be in 180 minutes at 100 volts or in 100 minutes at 200 Prius plug-in is rated at -US (1.76 L/100 km; 161 mpg -imp ) a combined efficiency based on a of driving in EV mode and CO 2 emissions of 41 Fuel efficiency operating as a hybrid, like the regular is 72 mpg -US (3.3 L/100 km; 86 mpg ) with CO 2 emissions of 76 g/km.

A global demonstration program 600 pre-production test cars in late 2009 and will in 2010 in Japan, Europe, China, Australia, New Zealand and the States.The commercial version is to sell for around USD 48,000 and production during the first is expected to vary between and 30,000 units.

The Plug-in HV two major changes over the Prius. Toyota has doubled the capacity to 13 amp-hours by installing a nickel-metal-hydride (NiMH) battery Accordingly, the overall weight of the is about 70 pounds greater a stock Prius. Toyota the larger NiMH battery is meant to simulate the level of the company expects to achieve it eventually develops its own more and powerful battery systems, with lithium-ion batteries.

The other major modification is the of plug-in capability. Plugging a standard 110-volt household via a socket located on the rear will fully replenish the in three to four hours.

The battery capacity means driving range is extended to eight miles. The Plug-in HV is capable of driving electrically at up to 62 mph before the 1.5-liter gasoline turns on. Maximum electric-only speed in the production Prius is 42 This electric-only range is not as as some of the unofficial Prius that have been in California and elsewhere.

Nevertheless, Toyota reportedly that even with experimental number, substantial in fuel economy and a major in total tailpipe emissions current conventional hybrid can be achieved.


The Prius uses three different two to provide all-electric drive and a battery engages when the two are depleted, allowing the car to operate in mode, like a regular Prius. According to Toyota, the vehicle starts, the plug-in in all-electric mode, drawing power directly from the battery pack. When its is depleted, it disconnects from the and the second pack engages and electrical energy to the motor. the second pack is depleted it disconnects from the circuit and the defaults to conventional hybrid using the main battery as the electrical power source.

Pack one and pack two will not in tandem with the main pack until the vehicle is in and charged.

Demonstration program

to Toyota a total of 600 Prius demonstration vehicles will be for lease to fleet and government 200 will be delivered in Europe and 230 in late December 2009, with 150 models to be released in the by early 2010. All program will be sent to limited areas and will be equipped special data tracking designed to allow Toyota to the car s usage for further development of the hybrid system.

In 2010 Toyota launched its program in Canada with Prius Plug-ins in partnership academic institutions, hydro-electric and governmental agencies in each of the provinces participating in the program, Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario and Canada is home to Toyota s cold weather research in Northern Ontario, and the country s weather will serve to its adverse effect on battery and range.


Toyota wil lease 200 units in Europe, with 100 going to Strasbourg, France. countries where the Prius Hybrid will also be are the United Kingdom, Portugal, Netherlands, and another eight countries that are being


The demonstration program in was launched in April 2010.The program involves around 100 Plug-ins and the deployment of dedicated infrastructure. The program will set up than 150 charging points at parking lots of firms in the program, user homes, parking lots and on public


The demonstration program in will be conducted in Baden-Württemberg ten Prius Plug-ins and the corresponding charging infrastructure. The program be run by German energy provider
