2020 Toyota Prius Prime: An Option for Rising Gas PricesJun 7th, 2019
Toyota Prius Prime receives upgrades on the 2020 model and remains the most efficient Toyota Hybrid while serving as one of the best options to protect drivers from price hikes at the gas pump.
Defined as the best or at the top, the word “Prime”, is a natural fit for the Prius model which is the most technologically advanced and best-equipped Prius in the model’s nearly two-decade global history. With the power to run in either EV Mode, EV Auto Mode or Hybrid Mode, Prius Prime strikes a harmonious balance between necessity and desire.
New upgrades for 2020 include:
- New 5th seat in the rear is now available for even more room
- Standard Apple CarPlay® and SiriusXM®
- Two additional USB ports are added for the rear passengers for even more ways to connect
- Black interior accents to replace previous white accents for a more premium feel
- A new sun visor extender
- A relocation of seat heater buttons for front seat passengers for easier usability
Prius Prime is the most efficient Toyota hybrid yet, with a combined fuel consumption of 1.8Le/100km. When the charge has run out, Prius Prime has a manufacturer-estimated 4.3L/100 km combined fuel consumption. 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 1,035-kilometre total driving range and 40-kilometre EV 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.
