On sale now for £27,995 (inc.£5,000 UK Plug-in Car Grant), the 2012 Toyota Prius Plug-in is a natural addition to the Prius hybrid family. It offers the ability to do short trips of up to 15.5 miles on pure electric power – but also the reassurance of a petrol-electric hybrid system for longer trips.
Fuel efficiency is greatly improved over the standard Prius – up from 72.4mpg to a combined 134.5mpg. Even if you don't charge the car, the hybrid system on the plug-in version will return 76.4mp
