Plug-in hybrids or PHEVs are becoming popular options among new car buyers, especially in the Los Angeles area. Toyota of Lancaster has added new Toyota PHEV options into its inventory. Hybrid car shoppers looking for a plug-in option can find a solution at Toyota of Lancaster.
The advantages of a PHEV over a traditional hybrid comes down to their plug-in nature. They have extended battery capacity over their traditional hybrid counterparts. Additionally, this battery can be charged by plugging the PHEV in through a traditional 120-volt power port in a garage.
With a fully charged battery, most PHEV models, especially those from Toyota, can handle relatively short drives solely on electric power. When the battery runs dry, the gas engine kicks on, and the PHEV continues to drive like a normal hybrid.
PHEV models from Toyota are denoted by including “Prime” in the name. Currently, the 2021 Toyota Prius Prime is the most popular PHEV model in the Toyota of Lancaster inventory and drivers in the Los Angeles area will be pleased to learn that the 2021 Prius Prime has efficiency ratings of 55-city mpg and 53-highway mpg. This model has a total estimated driving range of 640 miles, and off a full charge, it can go up to 25 miles on electricity alone. There are over 30 new Prius Prime options currently in stock at Toyota of Lancaster.
The 2021 RAV4 Prime is another new PHEV model available at Toyota of Lancaster. It has 40-city mpg and 36-highway mpg. These figures are with the standard all-wheel-drive feature. On a full charge, the 2021 RAV4 Prime can drive up to 42 miles on just electricity.
