Toyota Wants Plug-in Prius in China

Toyota wants to start testing plug-in Prius in China as soon as possible (Source: Nikkei via GCC). And it's no wonder that Toyota would like to succeed in China, where it seems everyone is increasing the number of cars they are selling at incredible rates.

But hybrids are not selling well, so it's a wonder that Toyota is pushing for plug-in hybrids in China. Maybe it's more of a political move, or maybe they are taking a long term approach. After all, the Prius wasn't what you would call an overnight success story here in the states. It took a lot of time for it to really catch on.

And it may just be they don't want GM to get ahead of them with the Volt or Nissan with the Leaf.  It doesn't seem like Toyota is getting close to a production ready plug-in.  And the Volt is only months away.
