2012 Toyota Prius Plug In

Picked up the car used last year. it's like a new vehicle. Never owned a Prius before but love the car. Would be nice for more EV range but like the fuel mileage and the regenerating braking.

Plugin prius

Specs on my Prius Plugin 121 mpg combined ~1000 mile tank rang 68% EV mode Return on investment ~1-2 years Price after incentives tax credits $25,200 + 60 month 0% loan Expect to save ~$1,000 in gas compared to old car So far I am very impressed. The relatively small battery seems to fit my driving pattern (most trips < 15 miles rt).

What I like best about my Prius is that I get to offload all the pollution at home by using electricity generated by coal somewhere else!

2012 Prius Plug-In

I purchased the base model Prius Plug-In this spring. I have over 12,000 miles on it in hilly NH. It has been great. I am very happy with it. On the weekend I can usually run to the hardware store and back and usually go about 90% of the way all electric. I get home and get a recharge with my solar PV. I hope Toyota comes out with a Prius V Plug-In in the next few years.

I love my Prius Plug-in

I just got my new 2012 Prius Plug-in two weeks ago and I simply love it. It has a bunch of new gadgets that my 2006 Prius does not have... radar speed control is really nice, headlight wash, seat warmers, heads up display, hd radio, electric seat adjuster, among others. My phone is having trouble connecting to the blue tooth reliably however... probably have too old of a phone.

My 97 F150 pick up has been drinking too much lately so I am buying a four cylinder beater to last me a few years until these EV/PHEV vehicles improve and come down in price.

Prius Plug in

I saw this vehicle at the LA Auto show this year. I like it, however, I'd like to see Toyota stretch the electric mile range from 13 to say 25 or 30. The rep that I spoke with at the auto show said the price would be about $32,000 (not the $36k as you show). Anyway, I am interested in this one or the Chevy Volt by 2012.

Don't buy a Volt

Chevy is selling a smoke and mirrors product! They state that the car can go 35 miles per charge I never got more than 27. Not everyone can afford the price and take the Federal credit against taxes. I am looking forward to the Tesla X. In the mean time I am giving back my Volt and buying another Toyota Prius!
