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

Trim:

Excel

For an added layer of luxury, top-spec Excel trim adds leather seats, an upgraded stereo system and rain-sensing windscreen wipers. There are also extra infotainment features such as text message and email integration.,

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.
