How does the Toyota Prius Prime work?

The 2020 Prius Prime is the rare combination of smart technology and head-turning style. Equipped with three different drive modes to maximize power and fuel efficiency, Prius Prime PHEV gives you all of the benefits of an electric vehicle, without the range anxiety, with the proven reliability of a Toyota Hybrid.

EV Mode:

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 and a top speed of 135km/h. Prime’s EV mode gives you zero emissions from the tailpipe without compromising on performance.

EV Auto Mode:

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 Mode:

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.
