You say you want an evolution? Well, look no further than the 2012 Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid. It's not game-changing like the Nissan Leaf. It's no Chevrolet Volt. But it's truly the most advanced Prius ever to hit the streets.

From behind the wheel, the Prius Plug-in Hybrid drives much the same as its non-plugged in sibling, the 2012 Prius Liftback. But the seemingly simple addition of a 4.4-kWh lithium-ion battery makes for a Prius that returns an estimated 49 miles per gallon combined and 87 MPGe.

What does the world's most advanced Prius to date cost? Well, $32,000 is the point of entry, but the Advanced version – a radar toatin', auto parkin', lane keepin', Pandora playin' machine – starts at $39,525.

For those of you dying to find out what it's like to drive the 2012 Prius Plug-in, your wait is now over as our sister site, Autoblog, has just posted its First Drive of Toyota's plugged-in machine.
