Details: As well as a pair in white/orange TfL Streets livery, several more Toyota Prius cars were delivered in summer 2010 in a bluish silver colour scheme. Although these are shown by the DVLA as being blue, I have described them as silver in the database, as this is more like their actual appearance. Among the first to be found were two seen inside Chancel Street on 20th July. One was for TfL Streets and carried their normal orange stripe. The other was for LBSL Infrastructure, with appropriate lettering and red roundels. This operation has a few parking spaces reserved at Chancel Street (one of their Vauxhall Astra estates is visible alongside). Note that the restyled Toyota Prius has a prominent battery charging point on the nearside front wing.

RayPrius PHV is a glimpse of what Toyota will be offering a limited number of customers from 2012 - a mass-production hybrid car that can be plugged in and charged from a domestic electricity supply. A 20-car lease programme is being run in the UK by Toyota and EDF Energy over the next three years. (Toyota website). Presumably TfL are also trying a pre-production batch. Mon 24/01/11, 15:55
