The Toyota Prius Plug-in hybrid is now available to order, boasting emissions of just 49gkm.

The Toyota Prius Plug-in is now available to order priced at £32,895. It also qualifies for a £5,000 Government grant, bringing the on-the-road price down to £27,895.

Like the original Prius Hybrid, the Prius Plug-in is a full hybrid, featuring an electric motor and a petrol engine.

It also features a new rechargeable litium-ion battery, which allows it to travel further and faster on electric power alone. Once the battery charge is used up, the Prius Plug-in switches seamlessly to its petrol engine.

As a result, the Prius Plug-in produces emissions of just 49g/km.

Standard equipment includes LED daytime running lights and headlights, Touch and Go Plus with touchscreen controls, sat nav, rear-view camera and Bluetooth. Leather upholstery is available as an optional extra, priced at £1,500.

The Prius Plug-in can be charged from any domestic or workplace power point, or any on street charging point, through the five-metre cable that is stored beneath the boot floor. Toyota has teamed-up with British Gas in order to provide customers with site surveys and the correct charging hardware.

First customer deliveries are due in early July.
