The 2012 Prius Plug-in Hybrid is finally available through Toyota dealerships across Canada.
The plug-in version of Toyota’s popular Prius hatchback is offered at a suggested starting price of $35,700.
Buyers in certain provinces can deduct from this MSRP applicable government incentives of up to $5,092.
As a reference point, the base Prius hatchback starts at $25,995 in Canada.
The Prius Plug-in and its third generation Hybrid Synergy Drive technology – already proven in more than four million vehicles around the globe – was extensively tested in Canada, undergoing more than two years of real-world field trials as part of a global testing program. Feedback from these trials helped Toyota engineers optimize the Prius Plug-in’s driving and ownership experience.
The Prius Plug-in Hybrid features room for five adults and up to 446 liters of luggage space. With a lightweight lithium-ion battery pack, the Prius Plug-in Hybrid is ready to go with a full charge in as little as 90 minutes when connected to a 220 volt dedicated socket or 3 hours when connected to a 110 volt dedicated 15 amp socket – and automatically switches to its full hybrid gasoline-electric system once the electric power is depleted so there’s never any worry about arriving at your destination.
The Prius Plug-in Hybrid comes to Canadians with many standard comfort, convenience and style features, such as: remote air conditioning system with automatic temperature control, heated front seats, display audio with navigation and unique aluminum alloy wheels.
An available Technology Package will further enhance the Prius Plug-in Hybrid with features such as radar cruise control and auto-leveling LED headlamps. The Prius Plug-in Hybrid also benefits from Toyota’s commitment to safety with an extensive suite of active and passive safety systems as standard, including the Star Safety System and seven airbags.
