The 2021 Toyota Prius Prime is built with the same 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine that powers the traditional hybrid Prius. It pairs with an electric motor, battery pack, and continuously variable automatic transmission to maximize its efficiency. And thanks to that, the Prius Prime offers a 40-km all-electric driving range and a combined fuel efficiency of 1.8 L/100km.
The combined electric/hybrid driving range is estimated at 1,035km, making it much higher than the traditional Prius. And yet the Prius Prime does not take long to recharge for its all-electric mode. It can charge in just 5.5 hours with a standard 120-volt household outlet or a measly two hours with a 240-volt outlet.
The exterior design of the Prius Prime matches that of the traditional Prius vehicle--futuristic and modern. Its sharp angles blend seamlessly into the roof line and hatchback's rear liftgate.
Inside, the dashboard layout is unconventional with a central command centre displaying a digital gauge cluster and large infotainment screen mounted vertically.
Because of the electric batteries, the 2021 Toyota Prius Prime does not offer as much cargo space as its traditional hybrid cousin. Instead, the Prime is limited to 560 litres of cargo volume, which is still significant for a hatchback of its size.
Toyota ensures that drivers and passengers are always top priority in the Prius Prime with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 coming standard on both models. This includes a backup camera, lane tracing assist, pre-collision system with pedestrian detection and bicycle detection, automatic high beams, lane departure alert, and dynamic radar cruise control
The 2021 Toyota Prius Prime is more than just a Prius with a plug--it is the future of fuel efficiency. The vehicle treats its occupants to a safe, stable, and environmentally friendly ride. It is a great choice for drivers wanting something more than traditional in Hilltop.
