Press Release : Toyota Confirms Prius Plug-In’s Eligibility for an Additional State of California Consumer Incentive and Its EPA Mileage Rating

Toyota today announced that its 2012 Prius Plug-in had been approved for the State of California’s Clean Vehicle Rebate Program (CVRP).

The CVRP is designed to promote the use of Zero Emissions Vehicles (ZEV) and related clean vehicle technologies by giving additional incentive to consumer on top of the $2,500 Federal Tax credit.

Having been approved for this program, the Prius Plug-in is eligible for a $1,500 rebate that will be provided to consumers on a first come first-served basis. This incentive is available when a vehicle is either purchased or leased for 36 months or longer.

The 2012 Prius Plug-in Hybrid will be released and delivered begin in Spring 2012. The launch states include California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, and Virginia. A national roll-out is planned for 2013.

The 2012 Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid will be available in two models, the Prius Plug-in and the Prius Plug-in Advanced.  The base MSRP (Manufacturer’s suggested retail price) for the 2012 Prius Plug-in Hybrid is $32,000.  The Prius Plug-in Hybrid Advanced will have an MSRP of $39,525.  Both Prius Plug-in models are eligible for up to $4,000 worth of government-supported consumer incentives ($2,500 federal tax credit¹ and $1500 worth of the State of California’s Clean Vehicle Rebate Program), in addition to offering eligibility for California’s High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane sticker.

The 2012 Prius Plug-in Hybrid offers the same five-passenger seating and luggage space as the standard Prius model which is expected to be capable of traveling up to 62 mph using electric power alone.  During EV Mode driving, the Prius Plug-in is rated at 95 mpg.  In hybrid mode, it has an EPA combined mileage rating of 50 mpg.  This means that when the EV Mode is depleted, Prius Plug-in still obtains the same estimated high fuel economy rating as Prius Liftback.  With its Lithium-ion power and extended electric vehicle mode, the Prius Plug-in is EPA-rated for a total driving range of 540 miles.
