Introduction

What Car? says...

When the first Toyota Prius Plug-in hybrid was introduced in 2012, it was an attempt to prove that Toyota was still the technological vanguard of the hybrid car market that it had kicked off in the late 1990s.

It wasn’t a very convincing one, though, given that the Plug-in only had enough battery range to cover about 11 miles before calling on its petrol engine, yet it was significantly more expensive to buy than the regular Prius.
