Toyota Prius Prime Reviews
Opinion by Matt Smith
I’ve had my 2020 Prius Prime for 7,280 miles (yes, in 75 days!) and luckily, my average is 101.4 miles per gallon!!! Therefore, I think, the best car on the market.
No stress overcharging like Tesla owners. I charge every night just to get the initial electric drive and the initial electric drive is giving me at least 32 miles of electricity. You can charge using any outlet. This is the best care ever!!!
Opinion by Paul James
Bought a 2019 Prius Prime owned it for one month and was rear-ended totaling the car out. After a few weeks of waiting for insurance to settle, I went right back and bought another Prius Prime.
I could have bought something else but was so happy with the first Prius Prime I bought the exact same thing again. Because I get right around 2,200 miles for roughly 9.5 gallons of gas.
