The Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid combines a standard gasoline engine with a supporting electric motor to achieve a longer range. This series has been around since 1997 and is thus a pioneer in the field of electric (assisted) driving. In 2005 the Prius won the "Car of the Year" title in Europe and the USA. The model is currently in the fourth phase with a 53 kW electric motor, which in combination with the 72 kW petrol engine guarantees a total output of 90 kW. The range can optionally be expanded with a sunroof with solar cells.
