Prius Prime is the most efficient Toyota hybrid yet. When the charge has run out, Prius Prime has a manufacturer-estimated 54 combined mpg. Designed with intelligent tech, premium materials and thoughtful engineering, Prius Prime represents the next step of Toyota's continuous quest to reach more efficient mobility with less range anxiety—without compromise. With its manufacturer-estimated 640-mile total driving range and 25-mile EV Mode20 driving range, Prius Prime continues to raise the efficiency bar to help challenge what's possible. The powertrain is a Toyota first, thanks to a dual-motor drive system that improves acceleration in EV Mode for a fun drive. Prius Prime is also great for commuters as its HOV-approved as a single-occupant green vehicle in some states such as California and New Jersey.
