The Prius has been earning fans for over 20 years, and the 2021 model has even more flash, features, and capability. In fact, it is also available as a plug-in hybrid. This variant is called the Prius Prime and you can try a 2021 Toyota Prius Prime in Vacaville, CA at Toyota Vacaville. We would love for you to get behind the wheel and you can check out our entire new Prius Prime inventory by clicking the link below. Of course, you can learn more now by reading beyond the link. We will walk you through many of the exciting features and options including the specs of the plug-in hybrid system.
The Prius Prime can be plugged in and that’s part of its charm. If you hook it into a 120-volt outlet from your home or in your garage, you can get a full charge in less than 5.5 hours. If you go to a public 240-volt charging station, of which there are over 26,000 stations nationwide, then you can get a full charge in a little more than 2 hours. On a full charge, you can go up to 25 miles before the battery runs out. That may seem like a short distance, but that is on a full electric charge, and most daily commutes are shorter than that.
Of course, if you run the battery out of charge, then the Prius Prime switches over into normal hybrid operation in which it can get up to 55-city mpg and 53-highway mpg. All-together, this gives the 2021 Prius Prime a total EPA-estimated driving range of up to 640 miles.
The 2021 Prius Prime is available in three different trim levels. The lineup begins with the LE and goes up from there with the XLE and the top Limited trim. All trims come with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 which includes features like a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, automatic high beams, lane departure alert, dynamic radar cruise control, and more.
The XLE trim adds a larger 11.6-inch touchscreen, wireless smartphone charging, SofTex-trimmed seats, and more. The Limited trim tops all with a color head-up display, intelligent parking assist, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.
