You have decided to take a driving tour of the great monuments to natural grandeur and beauty which our fine state of Arizona has to offer. The Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, The Painted Desert, Oak Creek Canyon, Organ Pipe National Monument, The Apache Trail…you are covering a lot of ground at this point. How likely are you to take this trip if you are going to be shelling out fist fulls of cash every day at the pump? In many cases: Not too likely.
A good life is easier to live if you set things up in such a manner that allow the best choices to come easily. That is where the new 2012 Toyota Prius Plug In comes onto the scene. A vehicle this fuel efficient makes those life defining road trips much easier to take. It makes a life well lived a much easier lifestyle to inhabit.
Prices for the Prius Plug-in Hybrid start at $32,000 and the top-of-the-line Advanced will cost $39,525; reservations for both start next month. Most buyers should be able to get a federal tax credit of $2,500 to ease the sting. Toyota believes the car will be blessed with a fuel economy rating of 87 mpg equivalent and that it will get 49 mpg (combined) when operating only on gasoline. Compare this to the Volt, which gets just 37 mpg combined (using premium fuel) when the battery runs out.
