This new Toyota vehicle utilizes a series parallel hybrid system which, simply put, allows the car to be driven with both electric motors and/or the gas engine. When you hit the road with a fully charged battery, your Prius Prime will operate on only the electric motor and should the battery run out after your long trip, your car then operates like a standard Prius, using both the electric and gas engine.
The Prius Prime is a plug-in hybrid that boasts a larger battery and a more powerful motor than the Prius vehicle so it enjoys a longer EV Mode. Thanks to its ease of use, you're able to charge this vehicle at home, work or any available public charging station. Should you choose to use a public station that offers 240V, your ride will be fully charged after two hours, approximately, so prepare to hit the road less traveled more often while saving money on gas!
The Prius Prime is also different from other Prius models in terms of its design. The new model features unique front and rear specifications that set it apart from the Prius while still remaining recognizable as a dependable Toyota. From the advanced Quad-LED projector headlights to the carbon-fiber-reinforced-polymer construction that results in a lightweight hatch, we invite you to stay in touch with Capistrano Toyota so you can view this ride as soon as it hits the market!
