2017 Prius Prime

For the last two decades, the Toyota Prius has dominated the fuel-efficient vehicle market thanks to its impressive lineup of incredibly fuel-efficient, well-rounded, and affordable hybrid vehicles. Now, the Toyota Prius Prime brings even more efficient tech to the market with a plug-in hybrid powertrain. Get the full scoop on the upcoming release date of the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime before it arrives at Toyota of Naperville.

What We Know

Toyota first revealed the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime at the 2016 New York Auto Show with the goal of having a release date set for the fall of 2016 in Japan, to be shortly followed by a North American release date. Things got delayed a little bit, though, and from what we know right now, the Prius Prime is slated for an early winter release in Japan, which means we should expect a U.S. release to follow soon afterwards. Whether this means December 2016 or having to wait for the new year is unclear at the time, but we do know that the wait is almost over!

Highlights on the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime

Luckily, from what we know so far, the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime appears to be more than worth the wait. From its unique and head-turning exterior design to its high-tech cabin with an available 11.6-inch multimedia interface, smartphone integration, and a heated steering wheel, the Prius Prime is distinctly forward looking.

At the heart of this model, though, is its plug-in hybrid powertrain. In effect, this system runs fully on electric power for 22 miles, which means that for typical daily commutes you won’t have to use any gas at all. There’s also a hybrid powertrain like other Prius models, giving you a 600+ mile total driving range before you need to fill up.
