We own a 2010 Prius . . . it's a great vehicle. The Prius V is an interesting product line extension but for the extra money, marginal additional space and it's lower fuel economy, just doesn't add up. Toyota would have been better off bringing a Synergy powered Sienna minivan to the market. Apparently there is such as vehicle available in Japan.
The plug-in makes sense for smaller, commuter type vehicles such as the new Prius-C. The range on these plug-ins just doesn't seem to be worth the additional cost (at least at today's fuel prices).
