The new 5th generation 2023 Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid (PHEV) is ready for sale after making its world debut in November 2022.
With the latest high-tech PHEV vehicle, Japanese Prius buyers have three separate engine options: a 223-hp 2.0-liter plug-in hybrid, a 2.0-liter hybrid with 196 horsepower, and a 140-hp 1.8-liter hybrid.
Every power hybrid vehicle produces power from both the engine and the electric motor.
The new, unique car was designed using the “Hybrid Reborn” idea, which is incredibly modern and oozes love at first sight. It provides thrilling driving performance and an unforgettable experience.
According to WLTC test results, the Prius PHEV obtains a 30.1 km/litre fuel average on 17-inch wheels. The Prius PHEV achieves a fuel average of 26 km/l with a 19-inch tyre.
It boasts a sporty, dynamic shape that evokes high-performance driving, as well as technologically innovative aspects such as a metallic silver lower grille and smokey grey tail lamps.
Nevertheless, the body style of the new Prius HEV and PHEV models is the same. Nonetheless, there are minor variances in colour scheme, form, and interior design that show individuality.
Specs For The Toyota Prius PHEV
Thanks to a specific Prius PHEV external power supply system, the vehicle can give electricity at a range sufficient to handle emergencies. Because of its external power supply mode, the automotive battery may provide electricity outdoors for leisure and other activities.
With a maximum system output of 164 kW, it has a high level of dynamic performance.
Even with 19-inch tyres, the car achieves a superb fuel economy of 26.0 km/L. Yet, with 18-inch tyres, it achieves 30.1 km/L.
A plug-in power system is a critical powertrain option that provides San with a clear path to carbon neutrality.
Toyota is constantly developing electric vehicles, such as plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and hydrogen engines, in order to achieve carbon neutrality and provide customers across the world with a choice of options.
A Power Supply
A full charge of the electric motor takes about 4.5 hours and provides a driving range of 87 km or 105 km when installed with a 17-inch tyre and charged using a domestic 200V power outlet in Japan (while using a 19-inch wheel).
The efficient running of the Prius PHEV is made possible by a second-generation roof-mounted solar charging system. Toyota determines the annual driving range of 1,250 km for electric-only vehicles using the Japan Photovoltaic Energy Association Labeling Guidelines.
The Prius PHEV also has vehicle-to-load (V2L) capacity, allowing it to power a typical Japanese home for five days.
Because it is a hybrid rather than an all-electric vehicle, the engine also contributes to this attribute.
In terms of price, the Haval H6 HEV is equivalent to the Prius PHEV, which starts at roughly Rs 9.4 million in Japan. Owners of hybrid cars with high finances, on the other hand, will most likely be tempted to it by its innovative technology, priceless features, and efficient powertrain.
The Prius PHEV makes commuting more exciting than ever before by combining high-performance driving with greater environmental friendliness.
The Toyota Prius PHEV has both a BEV external power supply mode and a HEV external power supply mode.
Electricity from the battery is used to establish an outdoor external power source in a BEV power supply mode.
HEV, on the other hand, uses a vehicle as a power source in times of disaster, blackout, and other emergencies.
