Heads-up hybrid-car shoppers in Glenside, PA! There's a new green machine in town. Or there will later this year, to be more precise. The Toyota Prius family welcomes an all-new model called the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime. The Prius Prime replaces the Prius Plug-in Hybrid while delivering a 25-percent increase in efficiency over the outgoing model, thanks in part to a larger battery.
Simply put, the Prius Prime holds Toyota's most efficient powertrain. A new dual-motor hybrid powertrain makes for an EPA-estimated 133 MPGe. The total drive range adds up to an EPA-estimated 640 miles.
