As I told you last weekend, we had the opportunity to know a little more about the new range of hybrid vehicles Toyota have just completed the Japanese with the release of their last three models: the new and updated Prius, version Prius + to the whole family with up to seven seats and, last but not least interesting, the ultra-efficient Prius PHEV plug-in hybrid technology and greater electric range. All of them have passed through our hands and now I am about to share the feeling with the car I have passed. Let’s start with the mother of the lamb: the new Toyota Prius .
