Test driving the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime Advanced

David Foster 03.03.2017 5 comments

We’re taking a look at the 2017 Prius Prime Advanced Edition. At first we were just going to do a review (Toyota provided us with one to drive for a week to review), but after I started researching this, I just fell in love with it and we wound up trading in our Jeep Cherokee for a beautiful red Prius Prime with white interior! So for the next week, we’ll have two to check out. And we’re keeping one! We’re working on a full review to be coming your way soon, but for now we’re taking you on a drive around the neighborhood to give you a feel for what it’s like.

Quick Specs

Range (electric and gas): 640 miles on 1 tank of gas
Range (electric only): 25 miles
MPGe (electric mode): 133
MPG hybrid mode (city/highway/combined): 55/53/54
Charging time: 5 hours 30 minutes from standard outlet; 2 hours 10 minutes from charging station

I just live. For lots of things. Bacon being one. Tech is another. Music is also one. Coffee is pretty important too. Oh and my dog Abbey. Luria rates pretty high on this list too. She’s at least in the top 10.
