    Hi All, my lease on my Fiat 500e is almost up, need a efficient commuter, all the new EVs are out of my price range lease wise, so here I am looking at an used Prius.

    Saw one 2014 Plug-In Base dealer told me it has a "panoramic roof", not sure if he meant solar roof. All the pictures does not show the top of vehicle. I Googled hard and based on my finding is that 3rd gen Plug-Ins do not have any "roof" option. Is this true? Asked dealers for picture on the roof have not heard back from them.

    Really like the solar roof, but also like to have the Plug-In option.

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    welcome!
    correct. neither pip has any type of roof other than metal. unfortunately, dealers are the last people to understand the cars they are selling. you will need to go in person, unless you can get some good pics, or the vin, which you can plug into the toyota owners website for details.

    No solar roof or pano roof on the PiP. Dealer is misinformed.

    ... and you know the solar roof does not charge the battery, right?
