Three modes to keep you going
Electric Vehicle (EV) mode combines a high capacity battery and electric motors to produce power. A generator produces power from the turning of the engine, or a Toyota-first a one-way clutch can engage the generator as a secondary motor for additional power, providing seamless acceleration. Prime’s EV mode gives you zero emissions from the tailpipe while offering great performance without expending any gasoline.
EV Auto mode, like EV mode, primarily uses electric power. The difference is that this mode will use Prius Prime’s power control unit to intelligently decide when to automatically employ additional gas power, like when climbing a steep hill.
Hybrid vehicle mode uses a blend of power from the gasoline engine and hybrid battery. Toyota’s proven Hybrid Synergy Drive technology and capable 1.8L engine, ensure that you travel on electric power at low speeds and a gas/electric combination for acceleration and higher speeds. All the while producing lower emissions and consuming less fuel.
