External Charging

Charge easily, whether at home or away.

The Prius PHV has a built in charger which makes it possible to charge it just by plugging the vehicle into a power outlet.

External Charging

Regular charging

Regular home electrical wiring can be used to provide the 100 V charging power, so there’s no need for special circuit installation work. We recommend using a high durability power outlet. AC200 V charging requires circuit installation, but it allows the vehicle to finish charging faster than with a 100 V power supply. The vehicle can be charged in roughly two hours and twenty minutes with AC200 V power, or roughly 14 hours with AC100 V power.

Regular charging

Rapid charging

The new Prius PHV supports rapid charging in conformance with the CHAdeMO standard, which is widely used throughout Japan. This enables charging with a larger amount of electrical power than standard charging, reaching an 80% charge in roughly 20 minutes.

These devices are being installed in a growing number of locations, including rest stops, parking areas, and convenience stores. Please note that membership registration or other contracts may be required, so please check usage conditions in advance.
