The Toyota Prius has been raising the bar for the automotive industry ever since it was first revealed in 1997. Its hybrid design has now become a staple for many automakers. Now, Toyota has done it again with the Toyota Prius Prime.
The new Toyota Prius Prime is the most efficient edition of the Toyota Prius yet! It gets the miles per gallon equivalent of 120 MPGe. In fact, the new Toyota Prius Prime has a range of 600 miles, once fully charged and full of gasoline.
The Prius Prime design is created to get closer to the electric vehicle end of the hybrid spectrum. It focuses more on electric range and less on gasoline-powered miles. Toyota even designed the Prime’s EV-only range based on the average driver’s work commute time.
The price is not announced for the Prius Prime yet. However, I bet it’s safe to assume that – between the money you’ll save on gasoline and the tax credits you’ll receive – the Prius Prime will be an affordable option for most drivers.
