The outgoing Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid had a disappointing electric-only range of up to 11 miles (17.7 km) but a new report is indicating the next-generation model could have nearly triple the range.

According to an "industry source" who talked to Green Car Reports, the next-generation Prius Plug-in Hybrid will have an electric-only range between 30-35 miles.  While that pales in comparison to the 2016 Volt, it's a major improvement over its predecessor.

Unfortunately, the new Prius Plug-in Hybrid is still a ways off as it's expected to be launched late next year as a 2017 model.
