More About the New 2017 Prius Prime
No matter how you choose to drive it, the Prius Prime adds up to savings. The EPA estimates that the 2017 Prius Prime can offer 640 miles of total driving range, 133 MPGe, 53 mpg combined, and up to 25 miles on pure electric power. The latter is a wide enough range for most errand runs and work commutes around Long Island, Huntington Station, Brentwood, Smithtown and Oakdale. The flexibility of its plug-in design allows it to be recharged with an outside power source. Toyota estimates that a full recharge will take a mere five and a half hours with a standard household plug.
The Prius Prime powers past its Prius Plug-In predecessor with an increased all-electric driving range, courtesy of a new, larger 8.8 kWh battery pack. When the battery runs out of juice, a new 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine kicks in - the same powerhouse used by the standard Prius, so you know it offers the very latest in fuel-sipping technology.
Even if you didn't already know about the high-tech powertrain humming inside the Prius Prime, its edge exterior gives a good indication that there's something unique about this vehicle. Its modern body shape is accented by quad LED headlights and a curved glass hatchback. A four-seater cabin offers the cargo flexibility of 60/40-split folding rear seats.
While there are three available models - the Plus, Premium, and Advanced - each comes standard with standard Toyota Safety Sense™ P suite of driver assistance technologies, like adaptive cruise control and pre-collision braking with pedestrian detection. The most appealing feature among all of the many available amenities just might be the available 11.6-inch tablet-style center display, mounted vertically for a user-friendly infotainment experience.
