We've all been a little bit surprised by Toyota's lack of buy discount levitra online interest in producing a plug-in version of the Toyota Prius. They have frequently cited several factors in their slow path to the www.fashionunited.info plug, including the inconvenience and medicamentosseguros.com cost of a plug-in system. But Toyota has finally decided to put a plug into a significant number of it's vehicles. Starting in 2012, Toyota will produce 20,000 to 30,000 plug-in Prius'. That is, at least according to a report from Japan's Nikkei news agency. The report also indicates that these cars won't come cheap, hilighting once again that we are still a ways off from the electrification of the autmobile.
The large lithium-ion batteries these cars will be using will bump the price up to "around the price of the iMiev", which is currently $48,000. That's a good bit more expensive than the Chevy Volt, and from what we've heard of the batteries system they're eyeing, it should only give the car about a fifteen mile all-electric range.
