New for 2012, the Toyota Prius Plug-in extends the Prius's ability to operate on electric power alone (EV mode) at speeds of up to 62 mph, for up to 15 miles. Like the other Prius trims, primary power for the Prius Plug-in comes from a 1.8-liter Atkinson-cycle 4-cylinder gas engine and an electric motor, which kicks in seamlessly when required during acceleration or when passing. In addition, the Plug-in receives a new 4.4-kilowatt, 176-pound lithium-ion battery pack, replacing the standard NiMH battery found in the other Prius trims. It fits under the rear cargo floor and includes a 24-foot battery charging cable, which owners can use to charge the battery in about 3 hours using a standard household outlet. When operating on electric power alone, the Plug-in achieves a miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) of 84 MPGe, and it manages a still-impressive 49 mpg when operating in hybrid mode.

Inside, the Prius Plug-in comes equipped with such standard features as Toyota's new 6.1-inch Display Audio, which gives drivers access to a 6-speaker AM/FM audio system with a CD player, SiriusXM radio, a USB port, Bluetooth and audio streaming, as well as navigation and a backup camera. The Display Audio system also incorporates Toyota's new Entune feature, which integrates with a smart phone via an app, enabling the driver to search for restaurants and stores, shop for movie tickets and check sports scores, traffic and weather. Other standard features for the Prius Plug-in include heated front seats, automatic climate control, a Smart Key system with push-button start, a multifunction tilt/telescopic steering wheel, a 60/40-split rear seat and power windows and door locks. Cloth upholstery with manually adjustable front seats also comes standard. Exterior features include power mirrors, a rear spoiler and 15-inch alloy wheels. Standard safety equipment includes 7 airbags and Toyota's Star Safety System, which incorporates enhanced vehicle stability control, traction control and antilock brakes with brake assist and electronic brakeforce distribution. Hill Start Assist, another standard feature, aids the driver when starting from a full stop on a hill.

The Toyota Prius Plug-in Advanced, which makes its debut for the 2012 model year, can travel on electric power alone at speeds of up to 62 mpg for up to 15 miles at a time. The Plug-in receives the same Hybrid Synergy Drive, consisting of a 1.8-liter Atkinson-cycle 4-cylinder gas engine and an electric motor, as the other Prius trims, but it also gets a new 4.4-kilowatt, 176-pound lithium-ion battery pack, replacing the standard nickel-metal-hydride battery. Owners can charge the battery using a typical household outlet and a 24-foot battery charging cable, which stows in the Prius Plug-in's trunk when not in use. When operating on electric power alone, the Plug-in achieves a miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) of 84 MPGe, and it manages a still-impressive 49 mpg when operating in hybrid mode.

The Prius Plug-in Advanced receives a number of standard features not found on the base Plug-in trim, including SofTex upholstery, an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat with power lumbar support, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and Dynamic Cruise Control. In addition, the Plug-in Advanced comes equipped with premium HDD navigation and 8 energy-efficient JBL GreenEdge speakers, all part of the vehicle's Display Audio system, which incorporates such features as an AM/FM radio, Sirius XM satellite radio, a backup camera and Bluetooth, all accessed through a 6.1-inch touchscreen display. The system also includes Toyota's new Entune feature, which integrates with a smart phone via an app, enabling the driver to search for restaurants and stores, shop for movie tickets and check sports scores, traffic and weather.

Other standard features for the Prius Plug-in Advanced include heated front seats, automatic climate control, a Smart Key system with push-button start, a multifunction tilt/telescopic steering wheel, a 60/40-split rear seat and power windows and door locks. Power side mirrors, a rear spoiler and 15-inch alloy wheels are among the standard exterior features, while safety features include 7 standard airbags and Toyota's Star Safety System with vehicle stability control, traction control, antilock brakes, brake assist and electronic brakeforce distribution. Hill Start Assist, another standard feature, aids the driver when starting from a full stop on a hill.
