Alternative to Fully-Electric Vehicles
A common concern with fully-electric vehicles is the range anxiety that comes with exclusively relying on a battery for propulsion. This is where the 2024 Prius Prime and its 72 km of pure electric driving range comes into play, giving eco-conscious drivers the benefits of EV ownership without sacrificing peace of mind while driving. Plus, with a full tank of gas and fully charged battery, the Prius Prime boasts a combined driving range of up to 962 km!
Regenerative Braking System
The 2024 Prius Prime is able to deliver its impressive efficiency metrics, thanks in part to advanced features such as its regenerative braking system. Instead of the friction caused by engaging the brakes going to waste, Toyota engineers developed a system that harnesses this energy and converts it to electricity that helps recharge the battery while on the road.
