I am a fan of Bradley Hasemeyer on Translogic.  I watch all his episodes on youtube.  I just seen his review of the Toyota Prius plug in.  He was not impressed.  In order to drive in EV mode you have to accelerate like a turtle otherwise the gas motor kicks in.  Plus you have to keep it under 60 mph, otherwise the gas motor turns on.  The range is also less than half of the Volt and the plug in Prius is not cheap either.  The plug in Prius is more of a gas car than an EV.

I will keep my Volt.  A real electric car, and the best car on the road unless you get a Tesla.
