Massachusetts Prius shoppers will love that the 2012 model is powered by a lithium-ion battery with a short charge time. 1.5 hours of charge at 240V AC or 3 hours at 120V AC will get drivers approximately 13 miles of EV cruising range. Trips to the grocery store, the shopping mall or the park will now be free of gas costs.
The best part is that the 2012 Prius Plug-in can charge at any normal outlet! The lithium-ion battery responsible for the EV side of the new Prius is very reliable. The technology went through more than three years of coordinated field testing in Japan, North America and Europe under various conditions.
Engine and Motor of the Outstanding 2012 Toyota Prius
While the battery is working hard behind the scenes on short rides, the specialized, fuel-efficient engine will be the bread-winner on longer trips. The 2012 Prius that will be available at Woburn Toyota serving Boston is equipped with a 4 cylinder, 1.8L engine. This engine allows the 2012 Prius to generate higher output and torque while operating at lower speeds. It’s also a quiet ride.
Another factor in the revolutionary 2012 Prius engine is the elimination of the drive belt, along with an electric driven water pump, which reduced supplemental engine load. This type of construction allows the engine to control the flow of coolant with increased precision based on vehicle conditions.
The electric motor in the Prius Plug-in is specially calibrated to grant Massachusetts Prius drivers more fuel efficiency across many different driving conditions. It operates at an incredibly high rotational speed, allowing it to generate more output in a smaller, lighter design, improving overall fuel economy.
Toyota Prius Benefits of Going Green
The 2012 Hybrid Plug-in has that sleek look that Boston Prius fans have come to adore in previous generations of this vehicle. It’s a look unique to the Prius. No other hybrid has it. The headlights melt into the body of the car, flowing back with the aerodynamic design ever so slightly to the top of the rear hatch. On the driver side toward the front there is a door for the electric charger. To the rear there is one for gasoline. On the passenger side there is an updated Prius badge that will let drivers proudly display their “Plug-In Hybrid.” The Prius is one of the most unique recognizable vehicles on the road.
