Scion iQ electric city car.
Not a company to rest on its battery powered laurels, Toyota is readying a comparative plethora of plug-in vehicles for 2012 in the form of the Prius PHEV, RAV4 EV and Scion iQ EV.
As many who follow advanced-tech automotive development are aware, Toyota will soon launch the plug-in version of its best-selling Prius, which is already making the rounds in the show circuit.
The Prius PHEV will offer only 12 miles all-electric range, so it won’t usurp the Chevy Volt in that category. However, the plug-in Prius’ price will be only a little more than a conventional Prius making it more of a mainstream offering.
