Where can I charge my electric Toyota Prius in Palo Alto CA for free

Electric vehicles are becoming more and more popular as the days go on because drivers are looking for more ways to save time and money, as well as do their part to help the environment, especially in California.

One of the most popular, fuel efficient vehicles of all-time is the Toyota Prius. The Prius was the first-ever mainstream hybrid made popular by Toyota, and in recent years it has become even more popular than ever with its new design and electric engine option.

Some drivers think that electric vehicles (EVs) are more trouble than they’re worth because you do have to plan out ahead of time where you are going in order to make sure the vehicle is charged up enough, but in the end, the pros far outweigh the cons of an EV like the Toyota Prius plug-in.

The 2015 Toyota Plug-in Prius is available at Magnussen’s Toyota Palo Alto has an estimated fuel economy rating of up to 95 mpge* and has a starting MSRP of $29,990.** It is extremely similar to the 2015 Toyota Prius save that it can be plugged in to charge and can run on electricity rather than gasoline.
