Prius Prime
Toyota’s newest plug-in hybrid, the 2017 Prius Prime debuts a new design and an improved hybrid system that is expected increase the all-electric range to 22 miles — double the range of the previous Prius Plug-In Hybrid. Toyota estimates Prius Prime will be rated at 120 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent), a 26 percent improvement over its predecessor due to greater battery capacity and the improved hybrid system. In hybrid mode the Prius Prime’s fuel economy should be equal to the Prius hatchback, and with a full tank of gas and a full electric charge the total driving range is estimated at 600 miles.
