Frankfurt 11' Preview: 2012 Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid to Debut

Next month Toyota is going to officially unveil the plug-in hybrid version of the popular Toyota Prius at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The Prius plug-in hybrid is based on the standard Prius, but gets a new 5.2 kilowatt battery pack, on board charger and revised software that extends the EV range and allows the hybrid to reach up to 60 mph on electricity alone. Toyota has yet to reveal the official specs, but the Prius Plug-in hybrid is expected to go on sale early next year.
