Prius Plug-in Hybrid
Toyota's newest hybrids get priced

We've talked about the Prius Plug-in Hybrid and the Prius v on a number of occasions here on DailyTech. Now, we have official pricing for both of the new hybrids.

The Prius v will start at $27,140 when it launches in the U.S. this fall. The Prius v uses the same hybrid powertrain as the standard Prius, but has a larger cargo area behind the rear seats (34.3 cu ft versus 21.6 cu ft). The Prius v weighs 200 pounds more than the standard Prius, so fuel economy suffers. Combined fuel economy for the Prius v is 40mpg instead of the loftier 50mpg for the regular Prius.

The Prius Plug-in Hybrid will be priced from $32,760. The new lithium-ion battery pack in the plug-in variant allows the vehicle to travel up to 15 miles on battery power alone (at speeds up to 62mph). After the 15 miles is exhausted, Prius Plug-in Hybrid will operate exactly like any other Prius hybrid. 

Toyota says that the Prius Plug-in Hybrid can be charged in 1.5 hours using a 240V outlet or 2 to 3 hours using a 120V outlet. 

The Prius Plug-in Hybrid also qualifies for a $2,500 federal tax credit.
