Prius Prime features a dual motor drive system that uses both motors to help propel Prius Prime. The result is a boost in acceleration feel, improved efficiency and the added benefit of EV Mode at full highway speeds.
With an EPA-estimated 25-mile EV Mode driving range, Prius Prime runs without using a drop of fuel. Charge it whenever you can, or don't. When the charge runs low, Prius Prime will continue to run as an efficient hybrid with an EPA-estimated 54 mpg combined.
A solid chassis means Prius Prime was built to be confident. With increased torsional rigidity from laser-screw welding, high-tensile-strength steel and uniquely shaped frame structures, Prius Prime offers a ride that's comfortable yet ready to take on every corner.
Prius Prime offers multiple driving modes so that the driver stays in control: EV (Electric Vehicle) Mode, EV Auto Mode and HV (Hybrid Vehicle) Mode. EV Auto Mode intelligently selects between EV and hybrid driving based on demand and driving conditions to optimize your efficiency. HV Mode efficiently combines the gas engine and electrical power from the HV battery to drive Prius Prime.
Prius Prime's purposeful features include an active front grille shutter that closes at high speeds, underbody covers, side body fins and an exclusive dual-wave rear class design—all which help Prius Prime slip through the air.
Prius Prime features visually striking Quad-LED projector headlights and available LED fog lights and accent lights to help you see more of what matters. In the rear, the taillights are equipped with LEDs that not only produce a brighter light, but also naturally consume less energy.
Prius Prime's rear hatch features more than just the unique design of the dual-wave glass. Made of carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer, a Toyota first, the rear hatch is made to be rigid while still being lightweight. Using this advanced material reduces the overall weight of the car and helps contribute to its fuel efficiency.

In Reverse, Prius Prime's available Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) uses sensors to detect vehicles approaching from either side. If the system senses cross traffic, it warns you by flashing the side mirror indicators and sounding a warning tone.
When a vehicle in the next lane enters your vehicle's blind spot on either side, the available Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) is designed to illuminate the indicator in that sideview mirror. If you continue to signal a lane change to that lane, the indicator will flash to get your attention.
