After waiting for years, I finally have the Plug in Prius. Before this, I had an older model, 2008, which I loved. I bought mine from Wilsonville Toyota, in Oregon. Here is my summary so far: 1. On my first tank of gas, I went about 400 miles, including two trips to the beach, without filling up. 2. On my second tank, being more consistent with charging it now, I went 430 miles. 3. I LOVE the UBS port so I can play my Pandora. The best! Then I found a charging station in Portland, one block from where I work! This has been really helpful to me. I can drive to work and back on a charge with no problem. LOVE IT! So thankful for the technology, and yes, I am idealistic, but thank God it's here. Thank you to Toyota for pursuing this, great product.
