Toyota Plugs In Prius for Efficiency
TORRANCE - A decade after introducing the world's first mass-produced hybrid car, Toyota unveiled its newest gas-sipper Friday, a plug-in electric/gas model set to be tested on California's roadways.
Although not yet available to the public, the prototype car is built on the automaker's Prius platform and includes additional batteries allowing it to run solely on electrical power for several miles.
"It's the evolution of the hybrid," said Bill Reinert, a Toyota executive. "We still have some things on this vehicle that need to be perfected, but technologies like this are going to be more prevalent in the future."
