Used car Libertyville dealerships acknowledge Prius has room for improvement

Prius has been plagued by troubles this year with a massive recall, but Toyota has pushed through it and vowed to take care of the problems. In the meantime the new models are being tested with the idea that Toyota can work through problems and glitches before the cars hit the mainstream market. The Prius plug-in is currently being piloted in various areas of the country by government agencies, university staff members and corporations. The feedback gathered from these drivers will be analyzed and used to pinpoint any problems or inefficiencies with the model.
Used car Libertyville dealerships are anxious to see how Toyota addresses issues like the fact that the new plug-in Prius cannot charge its two backup batteries while driving. They must be charged by plugging in to an outlet rather than using regenerative braking to recharge as the main battery pack does.
This decreases the efficiency and the distance the Prius can run on only electric power. Now, obviously Toyota knew this going in, but the feedback and the testing itself may offer the company some ideas and possibilities to address this issue.
So the plug-in Prius has an all-electric range of about 12 miles with a full charge. For those who are insistent about eliminating carbon emissions, this will likely not be enough. I’m sure Toyota will keep improving the driving range. Customers looking for used cars, Kenosha lots, and sustainable vehicles can look forward to trying out the plug-in Prius for themselves in less than a year.
Once the battery pack on the plug-in is depleted it runs like a regular Prius, switching over to the engine until the battery pack is recharged. Libertyville new and used Toyota dealerships will be listening carefully to what customers want from the plug-in Prius and what they think of its performance once it hits the mainstream market in the U.S.
When shopping for used cars, Kenosha Prius buyers will be looking for eco-friendly driving paired with convenience and reliability. The convenience end likely needs a little work when it comes to the Prius. Since the “electric grid” we keep hearing about has not yet materialized, the best we can hope for in the near future (2-4 years, I think) would be a series of charging stations. These might appear at gas stations or fast food restaurants. They might just occupy their own corner like a car wash. But until someone takes the initiative to build them, will the plug-ins come? Will the charging stations be the next Field of Dreams?
It seems those places catering most to the traveler like hotels and airports might be the first to jump on the charging station platform. Someone will, eventually. The question is whether the cars will follow arrival of the charging stations or the charging stations will appear out of consumer demand.
