Well, it seems the Nikkei didn’t quite get it right with its report on the next-generation Prius model range – due to arrive in 2014 – all coming with plug-in capability.

According to further reports following up on the original piece, Toyota, via its US office, has said that there’s no basis to believe that every next-gen Prius will be a plug-in. “The report is not accurate. We spoke to our offices in Japan, and the story is not true. There is no formal plan to make all Priuses plug-in by 2014,” a company spokesperson said.

Apparently, there’s no formal plan in place, so such an eventuality isn’t likely to arise, and with regards to pricing (the story said that the new plug-in models would enter the market at around the same price range as the current Prius line), nothing has been confirmed yet either.
