Toyota Prius Plug-in EV

This version of the Prius Plug-in concept first showed at the Frankfurt show in September and is the first Toyota vehicle powered by lithium-ion batteries. Based on the third-generation Prius, it can be charged from an external power source, such as a household outlet, and in electric-power-only mode can go 12 miles, significantly further than a regular Prius. Toyota reckons that adds up to fuel economy of 55 km per liter (130 mpg) and CO2 emissions of 42 g/km.
