Toyota’s all-new Prius PHV surpassing expectations

Toyota Motor Corporation announced that as of March 16, almost a month after its release, sales of the all-new Prius PHV (Prius Prime) have reached approximately 12,500 units or five times its target.

The new Prius PHV offers significant advancements in environmental performance due to its high-capacity lithium-ion battery and a more efficient plug-in hybrid system. With an enhanced EV mode driving range of 68.2km or more than double its previous model as well as a top speed of 135km/h at EV mode, the Prius PHV has developed into a vehicle that can be driven solely on electricity.

The new Prius PHV has received high ratings from users for its exceptional all-electric driving performance and distinctively advanced design such as quad LED headlights, large front acrylic grille and “double-bubble” glass windows.
