Plug-in hybrid concept Toyota Prius coming to Frankfurt

What we have here are the first official photos of the Prius Plug-in Hybrid concept. The Japanese automaker Toyota decided it was time for them to show the first photo of their new Prius Plug-in Hybrid concept. Toyota will publicly present the Prius Plug-in Hybrid Concept this month in Germany, during the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show. The Japanese automaker Toyota did not give any information regarding the performances or features of the Prius Plug-in Hybrid Concept. Still, Toyota did mention that the Prius Plug-in Hybrid concept will be available to a selection of 150 selected customers in the first part of the next year in order to get extensive feedback from valued customers. They also mentioned that the customers will only be selected from Europe. The same treatment will be made by Toyota to another set of customers from Japan and the USA, but after the project commences in Europe. The goal of this pre-launch if you want is to see how the plug-in technology manages to adapt in terms of performance and other criteria to the real life. To be more explicit, they want to see how the car performs on the road, if a customer can find it easy to recharge their car in real life conditions and so on. More details regarding the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid Concept will be made available towards the opening date of the Frankfurt Auto Show.

It will be interesting to see if Toyota will bring the concept to the 2009 edition of the Frankfurt Auto Show or if they will decide to keep things secret. I honestly do not know what to think. We do not have any performance figures, any improvements, practically no real information at all. We will just have to wait and see what Toyota decides.
