Toyota Prius Prime

Current Model
This plug-in Prius can usually drive about 23 miles on electricity only. But the gas engine tends to start up in cold weather and when quick acceleration is needed.
It takes 2 hours to charge the Prime through a 240-volt connector and 5 hours on a regular 120-volt. When not running in EV mode, the Prime operates much like the regular Prius, alternating between electric and gas power, returning 50 mpg overall. The infotainment system, with its large touch screen, is unintuitive to use. The compliant ride and responsive handling are quite similar to those of the regular Prius. All 2020 models get standard Apple CarPlay compatibility, two USB ports for rear-seaters, and a standard three-passenger rear seat (the previous models had only a two-person rear seat). Standard safety features include automatic emergency braking and lane keeping assistance.

It takes two hours to charge the Prime through a 240 volt connector, and five hours on regular 120 volts. When not running in EV mode, the Prime operates much like the regular Prius, alternating between electric and gas power, returning 50 mpg overall. With slightly altered styling than the regular Prius, the Prime is can hold only four passengers, and it loses the rear wiper. The infotainment system, with its large touch screen, is unintuitive to use. Ride and handling are quite similar to the regular Prius, with responsive handling and a compliant ride. Standard safety features include automatic emergency braking and lane-keep assist.
