According to Automotive News, the car will be priced at JPY3.2 million in Japan (about $41,000 at the current exchange rate), which undercuts the Nissan Leaf by quite a bit.

The Prius plug-in is currently being tested by European companies before it gets the go-ahead to arrive on dealers’ lots there next summer.
