2015 Prius Plug-in Hybrid in Chehalis
There is nothing like the feeling of knowing you are saving money, and if you come to I-5 Toyota to buy a 2015 Prius Plug-in Hybrid in Chehalis, saving money is just what you will be doing. The plug-in hybrid has the ability to drive up to 62 mph and travel up to 11 miles on the electric motor alone. This will give you the ability to take your shorter trips without even using your gasoline motor at all. But no need to worry, if your battery starts to run low, the Prius can seamlessly switch over to hybrid mode all by itself.
2015 Prius Plug-in Hybrid Powertrain
The 2015 Prius Plug-in Hybrid in Chehalis comes standard with one hybrid powertrain. The Toyota uses a 16v DOHC 1.8L four-cylinder engine with Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i). This engine can work by itself, work with the provided electric motor, or can take a break and let the electric motor do all the work. When you let the Permanent magnet AC synchronous electric motor do all the work, you can get 80 hp (60 kW), while getting an EPA-estimated 95 mpge. When the Prius switches over to the hybrid mode it still gets an amazing EPA-estimated 50 mpg.

No problem there, with the available app that the Prius Entune app suite has to offer, you can locate any charging station around the nation by using your navigation system.
Outside of great gas mileage, the 2015 Prius Plug-in Hybrid comes with many other great features. One of the nicest features is the big cargo space it has to offer on the inside.
