2012 Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid is evolutionary

I was hoping for better as well - this is just a Prius with a extra pack to give you more EV range (basically). I was hoping they'd at least give the user some better EV acceleration. It's alot of money for what you get - after the Federal tax credit you're within spitting distance of a Volt or Leaf, you'll get a much better driving experience and (by the end of 2012) both the Leaf and Volt will be made in the US. Although for long range driving mileage nothing compares to a Prius. My guess is that they'll just wait till the next generation comes out (GM and Nissan had both said they were testing batts with double the capacity for the 2nd gen versions of their vehicles) and then Toyota will have a 30 mile plug-in Prius and it'll be a much better proposition. We'll be getting a handle on capacity loss issues by then as well.
