At the 2016 New York International Auto Show, Toyota unveiled an “ultra-efficient” Prius with Plug-in Hybrid Powertrain that can achieve 120 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent). The “ultra-efficient” Prius is named “Prime” which means for “best”.  When driving in hybrid mode, the 2017 Prius Prime outperforms the Prius liftback in term of efficiency, and when driving in electric (EV) mode, the Prius Prime can travel up to typical daily commute distance of about 22 miles and it can speed up to 84 mph.  Literally you can drive the Prius Prime everyday on an empty tank.  So, is the 2017 Prius Prime an Electric Vehicle or a Hybrid?

The answer is “both”.  The Toyota Prius Prime can be propelled by gas or electric alone or both.  With a full tank of gas and a fully charged battery, which can be recharged at home, the 2017 Prius Prime can travel over 600 miles, an astounding driving distance that even Toyota advises making occasional stops to “refuel and recharge yourself and passengers”.

You can check out the press release for more details on the 2017 Prius Prime, which will go on sale in late fall this year.
