During this year New York Auto Show, Toyota unveiled a new version of the current Prius, a car that is already expected to make a market debut, as there are seven months since it was first unveiled in Frankfurt Motor Show.

The all new Toyota Prius Prime is in fact the plug-in version of the popular hybrid. The Prius Prime’s manufacturer-estimated 120 or above MPG is expected to be the highest MPG rating of any Plug-in Hybrid. It also represents a 26-percent enhancement over its predecessor, a result of greater battery capacity and an improved hybrid system. In hybrid mode, the Prius Prime is targeting a hybrid MPG equal to or better than the Prius liftback.

The Prius Prime is expected to offer an estimated two times the electric range of the previous model 22 miles, meeting the daily commuter distance of over half of U.S. drivers, and drive at speeds up to 84 mph without leaving EV mode.

Prius Prime adds new tech features compared to the all-new Prius hybrid, including its available 11.6-inch, HD central multimedia screen with standard navigation and available full color head-up display. “Prime” also describes the vehicle’s available advanced safety technology, Toyota Safety Sense. This multi-feature advanced active safety suite, bundles the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection and Automatic Braking, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Full-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control with full stop technology and Automatic High Beams.  Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are also available.

All 2017 Prius hybrid models come standard with eight supplemental restraint system airbags, including multi-stage driver and front passenger front airbags, driver and front passenger side airbags; full-length curtain airbags, a driver knee airbag, and a front passenger seat cushion airbag.

The 2017 Prius Prime will begin arriving in Toyota showrooms in late fall.
