There will be a long wait to get the new 2012 Toyota Prius Plugin when it finally comes out next year.  And you can expect to pay between $30K-$40K for the privilege.

But now you can get the performance of a Prius Plugin (100+ mpg) at nearly half the price.  And you can get it today.

This is a very special vehicle that was years ahead of its time.   It was owned by a Google exec, who took a fully-loaded 2007 Prius and added the high-end Hymotion Plugin conversion.   No expense was spared.  The result is the best of both worlds:  an electric vehicle that you can drive around town without using any gas, and a luxury Prius that you can drive on the highway without ever having to stop to recharge.    Just plug it into a normal AC outlet at night (when electric rates are lower) to charge up the battery.  Or drive it like a normal Prius (in hybrid mode).

This is an ideal commuter vehicle for those who do a lot of around town driving, but also want a vehicle with a 500+ mile range for occasional longer trips.

The Hymotion plugin conversion is essentially just a larger battery that sits above the spare tire in the hatchback area.  It needs no special maintenance, so you can expect this Prius to have the same legendary reliability as any other Prius.  And with less than 50K miles, this Prius still has a long life ahead of it.

We don’t see many of these.   This is a very special car that you will be proud to own.  If it’s right for you, call us to come take a look and a test drive.  But don’t wait too long- we’ve lowered the price for a quick sale- and when this car is gone, we probably won’t see another like it for some time.

Toyota Announces Plans For 2010 Prius Plug-In

The 2010 Prius Plug-In Hybrid Vehicle (PHV) made its North American debut on Wednesday at the 2009 Los Angeles Auto Show.

The Prius PHV has a first-generation lithium-ion battery. This is the same type of battery that powers laptop computers, and it allows more power to be packed into a smaller space. The newer battery will allow a Prius to drive in electric-only mode for longer distances and at higher speeds than a conventional Prius. You can recharge the battery by plugging it into a standard power outlet, otherwise the car reverts to standard hybrid operation using the gas engine as the primary motor. If your driving patterns are mostly short distances at lower speeds, a plug-in version of the Prius could dramatically increase fuel efficiency.

The arrival of a plug-in version of the Prius has been widely anticipated, and on Wednesday, Toyota made the official announcement that it was introducing a small number of these cars into the U.S. No word on when a larger rollout would occur.

Toyota has also launched a plug-in hybrid vehicle Web site on which consumers can follow the program’s progress and track the performance of the demonstration program vehicle fleet, it said in a statement

Toyota said the U.S. program will allow it to “gather real-world vehicle-use feedback to better understand customer expectations for plug-in technology. On the technical side, the program aims to confirm, in a wide variety of real-world applications, the overall performance of first-generation lithium-ion battery technology, while spurring development of public-access charging station infrastructure.”

Toyota is no doubt looking over its shoulder at the widely publicized Chevy Volt, a plug-in hybrid scheduled to be introduced late 2010. If the Prius brand is to retain its image as the most fuel efficient vehicle in America, it will have to adopt plug-in technology. Depending on the economy and the price of gas, expect to see these cars in dealerships in the second half of 2010.
