Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)
Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

All about the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid
The Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid has a Recommend Retail Price (RRP) of £31,334 and an On The Road Price (OTR) of £32,125. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery.
Drivetrain and Performance
The Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid is a plug-in hybrid (PHEV). The maximum power of the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid is 90 kW (121 hp). The maximum torque is 184 lb-ft. The Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 11.1 seconds. The top speed is 101 mph.
Battery and Charging
The battery of the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid has a total capacity of 8.8 kWh. The usable capacity is 7 kWh (estimate). A range of about 25 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.
For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 17 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 35 mi.
Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 3.3 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 2 hours 30 minutes. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 3 hours 45 minutes.
Rapid charging is not possible.
The combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid is about 280 Wh per mile in electric-only mode. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 145 mpg in a traditional petrol car.
The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 410 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 200 Wh per mile.
The Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid has a combined (electric and fuel) range of about 547 mi, of which about 25 of fully electric range. Please note that, even when driving in full-electric mode, the internal combustion engine may kick in under high loads.
When the battery is empty or 'hold charge' mode is engaged, the fuel consumption is about 55 mpg on the combined (motorway and city) cycle. When starting off with a full battery and applying a moderate driving style, no fuel is consumed over a 15 mile trip and fuel consumption is about 188 mpg over a 30 mile trip and 86 mpg over a 60 mile trip.
The combined average consumption of petrol of the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid will therefor depend on the average trip distance and whether the car is charged before each trip. Climate, driving style and route will have a further impact on the actual fuel consumption. The official figures in accordance with the NEDC driving cycle for fuel consumption of 220 mpg and a range of 685 mi are irrelevant in practice.
While driving in full-electric mode, the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid will not emit any CO2. When the battery is empty, or if the engine load is high, the internal combustion engine will be used. As fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are directly proportional, the average CO2 emssions of a Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid will depend greatly on several key factors that determine fuel consumption. Note: CO2 emissions are calculated per kilometre.
When driving using only the petrol engine, CO2 emissions will be around 120 grams of CO2 per kilometre on the combined (motorway and city) cycle. However, if the average trip distance is relatively short and the car is charged between trips, the average CO2 emissions will be reduced significantly.
CO2 Emissions will drop to 0 g/km on a 15 mile trip, 35 g/km on a 30 mile trip and 77 g/km on a 60 mile trip. This only includes tailpipe CO2 emissions. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels. The offical figures in accordance with the NEDC driving cycle for CO2 emissions of 29 g/km are for comparison of vehicles only and have no relevance in practice.
