Toyota To Start Selling Plug-in Hybrids

Toyota Motor Corp. Executive Vice President Takeshi Uchiyamada made the comments while showing the latest Prius plug-in hybrid Monday. Currently they are only available for leasing to governments and businesses, not regular consumers.

About 600 of the vehicles will be introduced in Japan, the U.S. and Europe -- 230 in Japan, 150 in the U.S. and 200 in Europe -- starting this month, the company said.

The plug-in travels 23.4 kilometers as an electric vehicle on a single charge, and gets 57 kilometers a liter in mileage.
