2017 Toyota Prius Prime MPG Figures
This small but sporty car will be able to travel 25 miles on electric energy alone. That means you can commute to work and run all your errands and still have plenty of range left at your disposal. After your electric charge is depleted, the car is able to get 54 mpg combined using hybrid power. Overall, it has a range of 640 miles and will use a whole lot less gas than the competition in the process.
When you are ready to recharge the battery, you simply plug it into either a standard or 240V outlet. On a standard outlet, it will fully charge in just 5 hours 30 minutes, and on a 240V outlet it takes only 2 hours 10 minutes. So even if you don’t have a lot of time to spare, you can restore the batteries and get back to electric-only power.
2017 Toyota Prius Prime MPG Features
A couple of features help this model achieve its stellar fuel efficiency. During braking the car captures kinetic energy from the wheels that is normally lost and transfers it back to the battery packs. A refined powertrain ensures that no matter what type of power you are using you are not wasting any of it. And the aerodynamic design of the car allow it to cut through the air with less drag. Together, these features help this to become the most efficient plug-in hybrid currently available.
