Living With a Prius Plug-In Hybrid

If you can recharge your cell phone, you can recharge the Toyota Prius Plug-in. We find it stylish, thrifty and so quiet we can sneak up on sheep.

Though a consummate city car, the Prius Plug-in can easily transport happy dogs, up to five adults or even a couple of large coolers.

Prius Plug-in Has Trunk Space
Yes, the added battery capacity has trimmed the size of the trunk, but there’s still a lot of room. On meat delivery days for his eastern Kansas ranch, Publisher and Editorial Director of MOTHER EARTH NEWS Bryan Welch easily hauled two 120-quart coolers.

No animals were harmed or seriously annoyed in these photos. In fact, they got treats.

The nimble, quiet Prius Plug-in is good at herding spooky sheep, as long as you steer clear of mud holes and other slick spots.
