Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid Concept
Toyota is set to reveal its clean, fuel-efficient Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid Concept at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. The car promises advanced lithium-ion battery technology, which offers a full recharge time of approximately an hour and a half and CO2 emissions of 60g/km. This new concept signals Toyota's ambition to construct the ultimate eco-friendly car and is also backed up by a test programme involving 500 cars worldwide being leased to customers to evaluate the car's performance.
The plug-in hybrid concept also serves a purpose in the current urban climate - statistics from countries such as the UK and France show that more than 80 percent of car journeys cover a distance of less than 25km, with many covering less than 10km. This demonstrates the great potential that electric-powered vehicles have in providing sustainable mobility in the short to mid-term. Research has also been done to address the drawbacks of battery size, weight, and cost, as well as an inadequate recharging infrastructure.
