gebraset - February 3, 2009 08:28PM in General News

Toyota has been one automaker along with many others, such as Honda, that are producing gas efficient cars. Honda has been catching on with their technology, but Toyota is now announcing that their new Prius that is a plug-in model hybrid, gets around sixty-five miles per gallon on average. Obviously, the car has to be plugged into an electric source and allowed time to charge in order to drive the vehicle. What is interesting is that the auto company is claiming that the figures are based on actual driving tests by normal drivers, and that no hypermiling techniques were used.
