#Immaculate PHEV Hybrid, EV-Ability, Dual-Mode!#We are very proud to offer you this exceptional and highly acclaimed Toyota Prius 1.8 S-Edition PHV Plug-In Hybrid, stunning in Mid Metallic Blue with the luxury S-Edition soft cloth interior package, and loaded with the features that make these such a sought-after car in New Zealand today!
The Prius PHV uses the best of both technology, with the Hybrid Synergy Drive system supplemented by a pure EV drive system giving additional range to the all-electric EV experience and therefore delivering superior fuel economy.
The two systems complement each other, or you can choose to drive in EV-only mode giving an EPA-rated range (estimated) of 18km under pure combined EV-Hybrid battery propulsion.
Toyota have engineered the Regenerative Braking system to recover energy both to the Hybrid Synergy Drive system and the EV batteries, increasing again the total distance range potential.
You can drive the Prius PHV as a normal vehicle, charging off the network as time and availability permits, still taking advantage of the Hybrid Synergy Drive system, and if you wish, select the "ECO" mode to allow the Prius to maximise the energy efficiency through moderated throttle response and reduced air-conditioning load.
In short, the Prius PHV may well be the ideal choice for urban motorist wanting great economy, a green energy footprint, yet no range anxiety, a take-anywhere practicality and an all-round comfortable and well-appointed cabin experience.
This Prius PHV has the luxury Black soft cloth interior with Blue accents, climate-controlled air-conditioning, full SRS Side-Curtain Air-Bag system, ESC Stability Control, plus two-stage dual heated front seats, push-button start and Keyless Entry with two factory remotes, all as standard equipment.
Travelled just 84,860km, sourced by us direct from Japan in exceptional Grade-4.5 condition and looking great in the Mid Metallic Blue, this is a superb choice if you are seruous about updating in to a Prius PHV for the New Year.
