When you think about it … what have we been waiting for, forever now? Well, we have been waiting for a plug-in car and that is exactly what Toyota is giving us! Finally, they have announced that they are going to be releasing in 2011 the brand new Toyota Prius PHEV, PHEV means Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle. This is a program that is going to start out as a lease but with success, I think that you will be able to buy these awesome cars.
Toyota will be building and deploying somewhere around six hundred examples of the Toyota Prius PHEV for testing which is mostly going to take place in Japan. The Japanese market will get about 230 units and then about 150 will go to the states and finally, 200 will go over to Europe.
The Toyota Prius PHEV is honestly one car that I think I want to invest in. Not only is it safe for the environment but it actually looks awesome!
