2016 New York: The Toyota Prius Prime gets lots of upgrades, but doesn’t come with free delivery

Meet the Toyota Prius Prime. No, it’s not the leader of the cyborg transformers from the tree-hugging chapter. Nor does it come with free delivery, but what it does come with, is a long list of upgrades over the last generation’s Prius Plug-In Hybrid–and that’s exactly what it is replacing.

Revealed earlier at the 2016 New York International Auto Show, the Prius Prime is the ultimate cultivation of focus, study groups and treehuggers to improve the Prius Plug-In as much as possible. The claimed figures are 52 mpg combined on gasoline and up to 600 miles in total range thanks to an all-new 8.8-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack with plug-in capabilities.

This also allows the Prius Prime to travel at speeds of up to 84 MPH on all-electric power with an all-EV range of 22 miles. The claim is that the Prius Prime is to be the most efficient plug-in on the market.

Other updates include revisions to the exterior and interior to help separate the “Prime” model from other variants to the Prius, which is due for a launch later this year with pricing to be announced later on as well.
