Used Toyota Prius Prime
Have you been looking for an efficient commuter sedan that can go coast to coast with minimal cost? The Toyota Prius Prime is Toyota's premier plug-in hybrid vehicle. It aims to offer an unsurpassed mixed driving experience as it marries the eco-friendly nature of an EV with the range and capabilities of a standard combustion engine car. Starting with the 2017 models launching in the US, join us as we take a deep dive into the Prius Prime and why a used model may be perfect for you.
Prius Prime PHEV, What To Expect
While the US received the Prius Prime in 2017, it started production in 2012 and was named the Prius PHV in European markets. It launched with a limited battery range and some hiccups that Toyota would improve upon for the second generational worldwide release. You can expect from Prius Prime a competent commuter car that can make most city trips without using a drop of gas, along with incredible reliability, improved stylings, and built-in versatility.
The Prius Prime Hybrid Engine
Your electric mileage will vary depending on the model year of your used Prius Prime. Current available used models have an all-electric range of 22 miles on the 2017 models and upwards of 39 on newer vehicles. As a plug-in hybrid, the Prime can be plugged in at home and charged to complete in as little as two hours on a 240v outlet. However, you don't even need to plug it in, as the hybrid engine can be filled with gas and will run as an even more efficient Prius.
With a charged battery and full tank of gas, the Prius Prime gets excellent gas mileage of around 54 miles per gallon. This efficiency makes it a great road trip car, especially if you can find the time to charge it between destinations.
The Look Of The Prius Prime
The Prius Prime shuffles things around, and while it resembles the standard Prius, the battery system and styling are changed to better fit the PHEV body. One seat is entirely gone in the Prius Prime, making it seat four, and some of the back cargo space has been removed to make room for the battery complement. However, to compensate, the Prime is a few inches longer in the front and above the ground making the cargo space ample enough while still comfortably seating four adults.
The interior has been updated several times, and while the 2017 models still feature the same layout, newer Prius Primes come packed with more comfort features and a more extensive, robust infotainment and climate control system.
The Safety Of A Toyota
A Prius Prime comes with some of the best safety ratings on the road today. 2017 Prius Primes boasts a five-star safety rating and trends from 4.5 to 5 stars on all subsequent models, with the 2022 and 2023 models also receiving near-perfect scores. Some of the highlights of the Prius Prime's safety features include the following:
• Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist • Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control • Lane Tracing Assist • Automatic High-Beams
