Toyota Sienna Long Island dealership shares details of current Prius plug-in research

With the progression of engine technology hitting peak levels, I’m continuing looking Toyota’s way for a better lease on engine life. Yeah, I know. The recent recalls for the Toyota Prius have slapped a permanent black mark on the Japanese manufacturer’s record, but it isn’t like Toyota is the first automaker to suffer from a factory part defect. We have to give the manufacturer some credit for dealing with the mechanical failures in a swift and efficient way. And we have to stop starting rumors that there are more reports of runaway cars. But, the important thing is that Toyota is making a play for a renewed spot at the top of the fuel technology pile, and Long Island Toyota Sienna dealers are getting set to benefit.
It all started with the launch of the Prius, one of the first hybrids to hit U.S. markets. From then on, the fuel technology revolution has gained steam and spiraled out of control (thanks to the efforts of market-savvy automakers) to expand far beyond Toyota Sienna Long Island dealerships. These days, it seems like there isn’t a single manufacturer that hasn’t ventured into new realms of technological advancement in terms of fuel economy. And now, the market is about to get sweeter with an announcement from Toyota that the new plug-in Prius is nearly here, sending Long Island Toyota Sienna and other Toyota dealers into a frenzy. The vehicle was introduced at the company’s second Sustainable Mobility Seminar, which took place about a month ago in San Diego.
The car will debut some time in the U.S. with 150 units for commercial use, mostly for testing by educational institutions, government bodies and corporate entities. For Toyota Sienna Long Island drivers, this is a pretty good sign that Toyota will be employing similar technology across other models in the coming years. This could also mean that Toyota Sienna fans will get the same kind of opportunity to test and share market data in the early stages of the car’s launch. Then again, it’ll probably be a decent amount of time before Long Island Toyota Sienna fans get to see it. But we’ll just have to wait in the wings and see.
A little more info about the engine technology comes from the press release: “The first generation lithium-ion drive battery’s unique composition is the key to the PHVs expanded all-electric power. The battery is composed of three packs, one main battery and two additional packs. At vehicle start, the PHV operates in all-electric mode, drawing electrical power directly from battery pack one. When pack one’s battery charge is depleted, it disconnects from the circuit and pack two engages and supplies electrical energy to the motor. When pack two is depleted it disconnects from the circuit and the system defaults to conventional hybrid mode, using the main battery as the sole electrical power source. Pack one and pack two will not reengage in tandem with the main battery pack until the vehicle is plugged in and charged.”
