Toyota Prius Plug-inThe image may be different to the version you have selected

The Toyota Prius Plug-in is too expensive by half. It works well as a short-range, pseudo-electric vehicle, but not well enough elsewhere

Sat-nav is added to the 7.0in touchscreen's functionality, as is internet connectivity. Both front and rear parking sensors are also included, as is a parking assistance system. The wheels on Business Edition Plus model are upgraded to 17in alloys, but you have the option to stick with 15in wheels – this version costs less to buy and keeps emissions down, which in turn keeps company car tax low, so is our recommended choice for business users.,

Engine:

1.8 VVTi

The sole drivetrain choice is a 1.8-litre petrol engine that works in union with an electric motor to make a modest combined output of 120bhp. It's possible to drive at up to 36mph using electric power alone, but most of the time the engine is in action, too. The automatic gearbox is a CVT unit that sends revs soaring when you accelerate hard, but it's much quieter than some other Toyota hybrids.
