May 6, 2015

The Toyota Prius Plug-in will cease production next month however don’t panic! The next generation model is in the works! The new Prius model is not expected to go into production any sooner than 2016.

The current 2010 design Toyota Prius Plug-in has been a favourite amongst Hollywood stars with the average Joe Blogs not being able to make his mind up about the Japanese hybrid. The Toyota Prius Plug-in has certainly had it’s time in the limelight, however now with electric and hybrid vehicles becoming more and more popular – it’s time for Toyota to up their game.

Nathan Kokes (a marketing representative for Toyota) confirmed the Toyota team is “hard at work” and the drawing board is chock full of fresh ideas for the new Toyota Prius however he did not explain why the Toyota Prius Plug-in was ceasing production in the interim.

Unfortunately there is limited information as to what we can expect from the next generation Prius Plug-in however the new Prius Plug-in is set to be more efficient (hopefully promising more than the 14 mile all electric range) and will feature more up to date technology components and a style that will appeal to a larger market.
