The Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid, the world's first mass-produced hybrid car, has been renewed since 1997 and remains the leader. Toyota's recharged hybrid model Prius Plug-in, renewed with advanced technology, stands out with its full hybrid power unit with only 1.3 lt / 100 km fuel consumption and only 28 g / km CO2 emission value. The revised Prius Plug-in Hybrid also offers a range of up to 45 km on a fully electric mode drive.

With extremely low emissions and the ability to go in electric mode alone, the Prius Plug-in Hybrid is featured in Toyota's product line with high technological features. The Prius Plug-in is equipped with a heat pump that uses heat from the outside of the vehicle, making it more efficient than conventional heating systems. In addition, during charging, the battery heating system heats the battery cells to achieve a more efficient operating range. This minimizes the impact of the electric vehicle range from cold weather while maintaining both battery power and efficiency. In the segment, only the large solar panels in the Prius Plug-in generate electricity and charge the battery of the hybrid system.

Depending on the weather, the solar panels can increase the electric drive range by up to 5 km per day in the Prius Plug-in, which is equivalent to an average of 1000 km (calculated when driving 200 days a year) per year.

Since its launch in September 2016, 1700 Prius Plug-in Hybrids with solar panels have been sold. Thus; annual 1 million 700 thousand kilometers of solar energy produced by electricity is reflected in the statistics.
