New Race Track Record From the Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid

Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid
The Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid conquered the Nordschleife Grand Prix race track to show the difference a truly fuel efficient vehicle can make in your daily commute.

Ever heard of the Nürburgring Nordschleife Grand Prix race track known as “The Green Hell” due to its steep hills and sharp turns? Well, this is a race track about 75 miles northwest of Frankfurt, Germany and the Grand Prix style track is widely known to be a part of the motorsport racing events as a safe and modern racing track.

While Toyota has loved racing around this track in the past, they decided to do things a little differently this time around. Toyota took the Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid out for a spin. The goal of this run, unlike the runs most often made around this track, wasn’t to be the fastest. In fact, the idea behind it was to see how long the Toyota Prius Plug-In could make it on one tank of gas.

The driver behind this race was Joe Clifford, an automotive journalist. He almost exclusively used the Prius’s electric powertain and only switched over to gasoline for a few of the more brutal up hills on the track. While Clifford maintained an average speed of about 40 miles per hour to help improve efficiency, his trip around the Nordschleife track still did prove a point – it’s possible to get to work or run errands using almost no gasoline.

Check out the video below and let us at Haddad Toyota know what you think of the all new Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid!
