  1. https://www.toyota.co.uk/new-cars/prius-plugin/?utm_source=ToyotaOwnersClub&utm_medium=ForumLinks That linked page says ”An increased EV range up to 39 miles” (I think thats about 63 km) As I understand , previous Prius PHEV gen 2 2017-19 has an EV range up to 31 miles (about 50km I think) And Prius PHEV gen 1 2012-16 got an EV range up to 13 miles (about 21km) So… does this new (or facelifted) Prius PHEV got a stronger battery than the previous Prius PHEV or has I misunderstood/got this wrong Is there any more known news beside 5 seat and moved (thanks) seat heather buttons ?
  2. Think some of You got Your RAV4 2019 by now. Congratulations !!! Is there any experiences about "real" fuel consumtion yet? Please let us know

  5. Your Toyota dealer/garage can delete that constant beep to just one. They have fixed/done that on my (former/previous car) Auris TS HSD 2014 and on my Prius+ 2016/17 and Ill ask them to fix it on my Prius PHEV 2015
  6. Thanks again ! This (new to me) info. Increase my oppotrunities to charge at public chargingstations from (as I thought only 1phase was possible) 3 to more than 50 sockets in our small town, wherof 12 I regulary wisit each week. In our biggest region town and in the area where my son lives my oppotrunities to charge at public chargingstations increase from 0/none to ten/10 sockets.
  7. Tested to charge from an public 3 Phase 32A 22kw station and it seemed to woork out well 🙂 Charged for an hour and got 19.2km (about 11.1637 miles I think) EV range. What will probably happen if the charger is to strong/much? How do I notice ? Is it likely that the cable or the hybrid battery, will be to hot/warm? Couldent detect any of these when i tested to charge from an 3 Phase 32A 22kw public chargestation
  8. Tanks a lot. You made my day. I Will test right now.
  9. Now we traded in our Auris TS HSD 2014 for an Prius PHEV 2015 and I got this Type 1 to Type 2 cable for charging at public chargingstations (as in this link, but the green one) https://eyocar.en.made-in-china.com/product/YSFxHRITOzrW/China-TUV-IEC62196-2-Type2-Male-to-Female-Plug-EV-Charging-Cable.html The manual for the Prius Plug In gen1 (as our 2015) says "connect to a socket for AC 220V-240V with residual current circuit breaker (RCCB) and circuit breakers as for local regulations. Use of a single circuit for at least 13A is strongly recommended " This applies to the original schuko cable, as I can understand. Instructional book's data on hybrid battery in our Prius Plug In 2015 Hybrid battery Type-Lithium Ion Battery Voltage — 3.7 V/cell Capacity – 21.5 Ah Number — 56 cells Total voltage – 207 V But ... because I'm ignorant on the subject and I want to be able to charge at as many public chargingstations as possible, my question is… Can/dare I use the above (pictured, green) type 1 to type 2 cable to charge our Prius PHEV at public charging stations with 1 phase 32A 7.4 kw? Most other public chargingstations hereby is unfortunately 3 Phase 16A 11kw or 3 Phase 32A 22kw and I assume I don’t dare to charge our car there, if I understand correctly or… is thete any way/possibility to charge our car there to. Maybe with some adapter ?
  10. I have not experienced any reception drop at all 🙂
  11. I thought abot to trade in my Auris for an used Prius+ 2012 (as complement to out Prius+ 2016/17), with wheels like Yours but our local Toyota dealer got an used Prius PHEV 2015 that we bought instead. Very pleased so far
  12. Thanks 🙂 No. Prius+ got 16" and PHEV 15"
  13. Thanks no quality pic. but shows our "new" Prius PHEV 2015 and right behind you can se ours Prius+ 2016/17 Silverado 🙂
  14. Today we traded in our Auris TS HSD 2014 for an Prius PHEV 2015. Very pleased so far 🙂 Easier for us to enter/exit and seems very familiar with our Prius + 2016/17. Intend to use this PHEV for mostley shorter trips in and around our small city. Thank You for all Your tips and advices !
