The idea of battery-powered is cool. But in reality, the weight, cost and durability of the large batteries required to fully Electric Vehicles (EV) are issues that aren’t solved. Toyota’s answer? lithium-ion battery packs complement the proven Prius power train.

Prius lithium-ion batteries are lightweight and weighing a total of just 330 So you get useful EV power and driving without the costs of an electric-only EV while maintaining plenty of space and seating for five. charge time from a 110V household outlet is 3 hours.

But, there is a population of drivers that less than 13 miles or so per day or that have access to a 110V outlet both at and at home. For these drivers, is of the belief that the smaller the in a PHV the better, both from a life-cycle assessment (carbon point of view, as well as a point of view. Research has that plug-in hybrid with smaller batteries, frequently (every 20 miles or with average U.S. produce less green gas emissions than conventional vehicles.

Pack one and pack two operate in with the main battery When pack one’s charge is depleted, it disconnects the circuit and pack two engages to electrical energy to the driveline. pack two is depleted, it disconnects the circuit and the vehicle operates a traditional hybrid. Pack one and two will not reengage in tandem the main battery pack the vehicle is plugged in and charged.

Prius PHV is equipped with battery-cooling blowers, one for each of the battery packs. Each pack also has an exclusive air duct. One cooling blower the DC/DC converter.
