Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid (photos) in Toyota city
Toyota Motor Corporation recently announced the Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid. But for me this seems like old news. I live in Toyota city (where… you guessed it… Toyota Motor Corporation HQ is located) and plug-in has been driving around all year. But they are company cars and basically promos on wheels.
These photos were taken in Toyota city on June 30th 2011, in the center of Toyota City. Damn, am I lazy, I’ve had this post as a draft for almost 6 months!
On a drive to Shizuoka last weekend, on the Tokodai Expressway (the main highway between Osaka and Tokyo) already has EV (Electronic Vehicle) charging points at most rest areas for the Prius Plug-In Hybrid.
Very interesting! Looks like the power comes from the solar panel on the roof and its very “Eco” as they say in Japan.
