Description
Toyota Prius 4D Hatchback Plug-In Hybrid Advance.
Gas or electric or both! My favorite of the fleet :)
Monthly rental gets a 25% discount. That's about $10 off the already low price plus free delivery within 30 miles! This Prius is better than a regular Prius. The most advance Prius because you can use gas and also plug in to go all Electric (EV Mode). The car will be charged before you pick up depending on the advance notice I would be getting. Just pick up from the Dealer 4/17/2017 with only 55,000 miles. So virtually brand new as paint and interior is in Brand New Condition. Car gets at least 50 miles per gallon if you stop to charge it and use more of the Electric side you get even more miles per gallon. You can get up according to The EPA fuel economy rating is 95 miles per gallon gasoline equivalent (MPG-e)
I get 77 MPG-E myself as shown on actual picture driving the car to and from work.
"The Toyota Prius Plug-In is a modified version of the mainstream Prius that splits the difference between its familiar gasoline-electric hybrid sibling and all-electric vehicles like the Nissan Leaf. Fitted with the same powertrain as the regular Prius but with a more efficient, higher-capacity lithium-ion battery pack that can be externally recharged, the Prius Plug-In Hybrid can travel 10-15 miles and up to speeds of about 62 mph on battery power alone. Both of those numbers go well beyond the capabilities of the regular Prius. After that electric-only range is used up, the car reverts to standard hybrid operation and as with the standard Prius, rates an impressive 50 mpg in combined city/highway driving.
The plug-in hybrid is a basically a 2013 Prius with a larger capacity 4.4kWh lithium-ion battery instead of the standard NiMH pack, an integral battery charger and an industry-standard charging port. As such, this Prius can be charged and driven like a true electric car for up to 15 miles at speeds up to 62mph before the internal combustion engine kicks in. Spirited driving will also cause the engine to assist the electric motor, but in most cases EV mode is a petrol-free experience. It takes about three hours to fully charge the battery using a standard 120V household outlet, and 1.5 hours from a 240V supply. A charger cable is conveniently located within a cubbyhole in the trunk area.

In addition to the unique charging port (with illumination), the Prius plug-in features a backup camera, LED daytime running lights and on the Advanced trim we drove, LED headlights (with washers) as well as a millimeter wave radar sensor for the dynamic cruise control and pre-collision systems. Once inside, you're treated to the usual full-on Star Trek experience -- the Prius plug-in improves upon its hybrid sibling with a higher resolution multi-information panel (which also shows EV specific data) paired with Toyota's Touch Tracer Display. The Advanced model adds a hard drive to the JBL-branded navigation system, OnStar-like functionality and a heads-up display that shows speed and turn-by-turn directions.

The star of the show is definitely Toyota's Entune infotainment system, which will be include additional apps unique to the Advanced trim (Charge Management, Remote Air Conditioning System, Charging Station Map, Vehicle Finder and Eco Dashboard).The voice-controlled navigation takes a bit of time to master, but the touchscreen interface is intuitive and easy to use." This car doesn't satellite radio anymore. It requires a service fee.

FAQs
Do you have to charge the car in order to use it.
No this is a Hybrid it can run on Gas.
How far can I go before the car uses gas.
You can go about 20 miles. So for example if you work on 10 miles away you would never use gas. Just plug in and you will not spend a dime on gas.
