Toyota Prius Repair & Service Center

The Toyota Prius first went on sale in 1997. This is the same year that A+ Japanese Auto Repair Inc. opened our doors. In 2000 we purchased two of the new Toyota Prius vehicles as our auto repair courtesy shuttle vehicles. The Toyota Prius was first sold in the USA in 2000. Since that time we have fallen in love with them and become known as the experts in San Carlos for Toyota Prius car repair and service. In 2011 worldwide sales reached 1 million Toyota Prius vehicles sold since 1997. A+ Japanese Auto Repair has seen the Evolution of the Toyota Prius occur before our eyes as we have at least one Prius in the facility every day.

A+ Japanese Auto Repair - Recruited as Plug In Prius Specialists:

A+ Japanese Auto Repair was recruited for our expertise in 2003 by A123 systems to consult on the Hymotion Battery Pack conversion that the company was developing. This later lead to a relationship that grew into A+ Japanese Auto Repair becoming 1 of 7 installers of the Hymotion Pack for the Generation 2 Toyota Prius. This Battery pack realized gains in gas mileage of 100+ miles per gallon or 40+ mile electric range depending on driving style and conditions. This was an exciting time for us and the Prius as people saw value in a Plug In Prius they could charge at home Toyota Motor Corporation took notice and developed a factory produced plug in prius to meet the demand for this type of vehicle. The generation three prius is the first generation to see this factory produced plug in model.
