Toyota took another step away from dependence on gasoline in 2012 with the introduction of the four-door hatchback Prius Plug-in hybrid. While similar in appearance and features to the regular Prius, the Plug-in is powered in part by a lithium-ion battery pack that is rechargeable through an external source, such as an outlet in a home garage.

The Plug-in runs in all-electric EV mode or in hybrid mode when the 1.8-liter four-cylinder kicks in and combines with two electric motors to produce 134 horsepower. At its rollout, the Plug-in was offered with limited availability in only 15 states.

Major changes included:

Toyota debuted yet another variant of the Prius in 2012, with the launch of the Prius Plug-In Hybrid. On the outside, the first-gen Prius Plug-In looked nearly identical to the base Prius Hybrid, but it carried a 4.4 kWh lithium-ion battery that afforded the hatchback an electric-only range of 15 miles. Otherwise, it used the same 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that churned out 134 horsepower and connected to a continuously variable transmission.
