The second generation Prius plug-in hybrid, the Toyota Prius Prime, was unveiled at the 2016 New York International Auto Show. The Prius Prime has an 8.8 kWh lithium-ion battery that delivers an EPA-rated all-electric range of 25 mi (40 km). On one full tank of regular-grade gasoline and a full electric charge, total range is 640 mi (1,030 km)[7] Toyota’s initial expectation was a range of 22 mi (35 km) on a full charge, doubling the first generation model range. To keep up with the demands of charging the larger pack, the onboard charger was upgraded to a 3.3 kW, up from 2.2 kW in the Prius Plug-in. The lithium-ion battery pack can be charged in 5.5 hours with a standard plug at 120 volts, or a dedicated 240 volts outlet can cut the charging time by more than half.

Toyota Prius Prime User Reviews

  1. Dependable, solid, and smooth. Only thing to think about is if you have access to enough charging points. Personally, a great fit for me and my family.

  2. Definitely less space than a normal prius, but worth it when you save so much on cost. Also, the range is amazing. Much better than the Chevy Volt.
