The new Toyota Prius Plug-in has been declared the 2017 World Green Car. It marks the second consecutive success for Toyota in this prestigious annual award, following the win of the Toyota Mirai in last year’s ceremony. Prius Plug-in was chosen from an initial entry list of 12 new models. The World Green Car award was determined on criteria including exhaust emissions, fuel consumption, and advanced powertrain technology aimed at increasing the vehicle’s environmental performance.
Arriving in Shelbourne Motors Toyota last month, the new Prius Plug-in represents a significant leap forward in Toyota’s plug-in hybrid technology. Compared to the first generation model, the new car can cover double the distance – more than 30 miles – and achieve much higher speeds in all-electric, emissions-free driving.
It benefits from a number of new technologies that increase efficiency, performance and practicality, significantly enhancing the model’s all-round appeal. Technological breakthroughs include a dual motor drive system and battery warming system, plus three world firsts: range-extending solar roof, gas-injection heat pump air conditioning, and a carbon fibre reinforced plastic tailgate.
To celebrate this success, the Toyota Prius Plug-in is now available on special offer at Shelbourne Motors with up to £1000 towards your deposit.
