Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid Review Electric driving for about a dozen miles, then a regular ol#039; 50-mpg Prius Styling The Toyota Prius maintains an iconic status as the quintessential hybrid gas-electric car. That dates back to the introduction of the second-generation Prius a decade ago, when Toyota unveiled the car’s signature aerodynamic shape. It is unmistakable on the road. Critics disparage it as dorky, appliance-like, jellybean, or just plain ugly. Fans defend it as tech-chic or space age, and point to its very low air resistance (and the resulting efficiency) as its underlying inspiration. No matter how you slice it, the style of the Prius is decidedly not sleek and sporty. ...

Toyota cuts price of Prius Hybrid plug-in to spur demand By Paul A. Eisenstein Thorsten Wagner A Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid car is pictured during press day at the Frankfurt motor show Sept.9, 2013.

Virtually every automaker marketing advanced battery vehicles, including Ford, General Motors, Honda and Nissan, has been forced to trim prices this year as sales of plug-ins, extended-range electric vehicles and ...

Toyota Prius — Power Split Device

Toyota Prius — Power Split Device (PSD) The Toyota Prius is packed with some pretty high-tech stuff, but at the heart of the Hybrid Synergy Drive (HSD) is a simple little device called the Power Split Device, or PSD. The PSD is a planetary gear set that removes the need for a traditional stepped gearbox and transmission components, and also the familiar rev-lurch-rev-lurch of acceleration in an ordinary gas powered car. It acts as a continuously variable transmission (CVT) but with a fixed gear ratio. If you have no mathematical or mechanical understanding of hybrid technology or even regular engine components, this will help you get a feel for how the PSD allows the car to use power ...

2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid — HybridCars.com

Photo Gallery 43 / 39MPG BODY TYPE: Sedan TECHNOLOGY: Hybrid BASE MSRP: $25,900 Driving the all-new 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid is pretty much like driving the all-new gas powered 2012 Camry. Now I don’t expect you to take my word on this so, I would like to throw out a challenge. When the 2012 Toyota Camry rolls into dealerships in November, take both cars out for a test drive. But, when you slip behind the steering wheels, you can’t know which version of the car you are testing. After you’ve driven both cars I’m willing to bet—not large sums, well, a few pennies to be exact—that unless you’re among the most perceptive of drivers, you found little if any difference in the driving ...

Toyota Plugs-In the Prius, Erasing Range Anxiety Easily the most recognized hybrid on American roads, Toyota’s Prius gains an electric plug-in. (Courtesy of Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc.)

Re-charging our iPad tablet computers, electric shavers or the little car vacuum cleaners we rely on to eliminate crumbs and dust from vehicle interiors has become second nature by now. Re-charging cars, however, will strike many as odd. But we had better get used to the idea because plugging in cars is the wave of the future. According to the Department of Energy, at least a half a dozen carmakers have or ...
