While one member of the Prius family seems to be disappearing this model year, one is becoming more prevalent than ever: the 2018 Toyota Prius Prime in Palatine IL. While it still has a long climb to reach heights of the regular Prius, or even the Prius c, the plug-in hybrid version of the iconic Toyota Prius is certainly continuing to turn heads left and right. Offering incredible efficiency and range plus a premium, almost futuristic cabin packed with top-of-the-line features, the Prius Prime is the ultimate vehicle.
With an affordable price tag and out-of-this-world efficiency, the Prius Prime is one of the best plug-in hybrid options available on the market today. It offers a host of technologies inside and out that make every drive an enjoyable, memorable experience.
But what, exactly, leads it to have such a reputation? We thought we’d tell you specifically, by diving into some of the specs & features that make the 2018 Prius Prime such an incredible option. Let’s start with the truly mind-blowing numbers. According to EPA estimations, the 2018 Prius Prime will be able to drive 640 miles total when fully charged – which takes 5.5 hours in a standard outlet – and filled with gas. It’s able to drive 54 miles on every gallon of gasoline, and combined with its electric motor it achieves an MPGe of 133, which is truly impressive. On top of all this, you could earn a Federal Tax Credit of up to $4,500!
But the impressive specs & features don’t stop in the engine. They become obvious as soon as you slide into the cabin with the massive 11.6” HD multimedia display that looks more like a mounted tablet than a display audio screen. With plenty of connectivity and entertainment features, not to mention all of the comfortable and convenient features found in most Toyota models, plus Toyota Safety Sense. We could drone on and on all day, but instead we think you should just come take one for a test drive!
