The Prius Plug-In is an exciting new addition to Toyota’s lineup of Prius Hybrid vehicles. With its innovative plug-in capabilities, the Prius Plug-In is able to travel further and go longer on electric power alone. As a result, the Prius Plug-In is the most efficient Prius vehicle on the road today. To highlight the incredible capabilities of the Prius Plug-In, Toyota created the Prius Plug-In MPG Challenge. Let’s take a look at the competition, and how the winners of the challenge achieved their fantastic MPG ratings:
The Prius Plug-In MPG Challenge featured participants from around the country. Teams were comprised of workers and volunteers at ecologically conscious organizations. These teams competed to see who could achieve the best MPG from a Prius Plug-In model during a 30-day period. The Prius Plug-In vehicles were used for the daily driving activities related to the operations of each organization.
During the challenge, each team tested out the fantastic capabilities of the Prius Plug-In. This cutting edge Prius model is able to transition between hybrid and all-electric driving modes. When the Prius Plug-In is in electric mode, it achieves a fantastic economy of 95 MPGe. Once the hybrid mode switches on, the Prius Plug-In offers an equally terrific 50 MPG rating.
The winner of the first-ever Prius Plug-In MPG Challenge was Helping Hands Food Pantry. This team was able to achieve an incredible 356 MPGe over 30 days of driving the Prius Plug-In. The next wave of the challenge is about to start, so stay tuned to see if the next winners can beat this impressive score.
