Do I need to plug it in to use it?

No, but it is generally advantageous to plug it in. Depending on your electricity rate, you could save money by plugging the vehicle in. Maximum fuel savings will occur the more often the vehicle is charged fully (at home and at work, for example).

How is it different from Prius?

What’s the difference between Prius and Prius Plug-in Hybrid?

Prius Plug-in Hybrid works just like a regular Prius, but with an extended electric driving range for enhanced fuel efficiency. With a fully charged battery, Prius Plug-in Hybrid can provide up to an EPA-rated 95 MPGe in EV Mode.

Will I use less gas?

How fuel-efficient is Prius Plug-in Hybrid?

A fully charged Prius Plug-in Hybrid battery helps enhance fuel efficiency, with an EPA-rated 95 MPGe. And should the battery run low while driving, Prius Plug-in Hybrid seamlessly switches over to hybrid mode and operates just like the regular Prius, letting you continue your travels up to an EPA-estimated 50 mpg in hybrid mode.

How much can I save?

How much can I save with Prius Plug-in Hybrid?

How much you save depends on many factors, like road conditions, driving habits and vehicle maintenance.

But should the battery run out on longer trips, Prius Plug-in Hybrid seamlessly switches over to hybrid mode and lets you continue your travels with an EPA-estimated 50 mpg in hybrid mode. This means you could save fuel on just about any commute. You can find more personal savings information here.
