Prius PHEV Conversion Kit
Convert a Toyota Prius ® to True Electric Power!


The Toyota Prius®, as Toyota makes it, is basically just a gasoline powered car. It uses gasoline to generate electricity, and uses that electricity to run an electric motor. It comes with a very small battery pack and cannot provide significant cost savings because it cannot get energy from anything other than gasoline. However, now you can convert it to a plug in hybrid with a pure electric mode that generates no pollution!

Our Prius PHEV conversion kit gives you these benefits:

  • Electric Mode (Uses no gasoline) - at speeds up to 65 mph (105 km/h)!

  • A pure electric range of over 30 miles (65 km)! Conversely, the standard factory battery will only take the car about two miles on electricity.

  • Enhanced hybrid mode - uses the gasoline engine and the electric motor one to get increased range and astounding gas mileage!

  • Plug in charging - the standard Prius only charges the battery with power generated by the gasoline engine. Significant cost savings result from plug in charging.

How do we do that?

For years we have worked with conversions of gasoline cars to electricity. Lithium batteries are the industry standard for electric vehicles because of their very long life, high cell voltage, high energy density, and safety. This is why they have replaced lead acid batteries and nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) batteries like the standard one used in the Prius. However, Lithium batteries present some unique challenges in that they have to be charged using special algorithms and carefully voltage-balanced so that they will last a long time. We have extensive experience with Lithium batteries, chargers, and BMSs (Battery Management Systems, the systems which keep Lithium pack voltages balanced). We have extensive relationships with Lithium battery suppliers and can give you the best prices on the batteries needed for a Prius PHEV conversion. Don't worry, our expertise will make your conversion experience a happy one! 

The Prius computer is already programmed for the pure electric mode, it is just a matter of changing wiring to enable it. The problem is that it's old NiMH battery pack is small and inadequate. Our Prius PHEV conversion kit includes a lithium battery pack to replace the standard one, a charger and BMS for the new pack, all needed connectors, and instructions so that you can do the conversion yourself.

 

The new 60Ah cell will most likely make it possible to get up to 60 miles (96 Km) of range.  After the conversion is made you will have a simple switch that allows you to drive either on straight electric power or a blend of gasoline and electricity. We routinely get over 120 miles per gallon gas consumption when driving in the blended mode.

 

In our measurements the Prius will go about 272 watts a mile under normal driving conditions.
