The original Toyota Prius set the hybrid standard for the rest of the American car market. It proved that a practical mid-size hybrid vehicle could work and be family-friendly while achieving 50 mpg efficiency ratings.
The full hybrid drivetrain of the Prius means it can run on engine alone, battery alone, or a combination of the two depending on the demands of the driver and the terrain. The drivetrain comprises a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine and a NiMh battery pack and motor. The engine charges the battery and the battery assists the motor when needed. The brakes capture kinetic energy and use it to recharge the battery as well.
The suspension is a very conventional MacPherson strut front/torsion beam rear setup. The car comes with a 6-speaker stereo, power accessories and automatic climate control -- essentially a very conventional mid-size sedan, but one that achieves 51 mpg in the city and 48 mpg on the highway.
Several Prius variations are available, intended to appeal to a wider group of potential buyers. A larger version of the Prius is called the Prius v. It's a little longer than the standard Prius, with most of that length going for rear-seat room and rear cargo space, essentially making this a "Prius Wagon." The Prius v gets the same 1.8L 4-cylinder and battery pack, and fuel economy will be slightly lower with this model. However, it still offers the same value-packed standard feature list and "green" credibility as its older brother.
The diminutive Prius c is the smallest variant, offering an impressive 53/46 mpg return in a super mini package. It is powered by a 1.5L 4-cylinder with an electric motor and battery pack. Finally, there's the Prius Plug-in. It uses a wall charger to maximize the range of its onboard battery and thus achieves very strong fuel economy numbers. The Plug-In utilizes the standard Prius body and a similar powertrain, but is intended to be charged before use. The stored energy in the battery pack can propel the Prius Plug-In for 13 miles without starting the gasoline engine, and it charges in as little as 1.5 hours. Most commuters will be able to get to work on battery power alone, using the 1.8L high-efficiency engine for anywhere else they want to go.
Several trim levels exist for each Prius model, each carrying a number designation. Even base models, known as the "Prius Two" come nicely equipped, with amenities such as halogen headlights, automatic climate control, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, 3.5-inch multi-function display, and more. Top-tier Prius Five models include things like LED headlights with integrated fog lights, 17-inch wheels, special SofTex leatherette seating, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The Persona Series adds equipment to the Prius Three trim level, including chrome accents, SofTex seating, 17-inch alloys and side mirrors with integrated turn signals.
Special options include hard-drive-based navigation, a pre-collision safety system, panoramic power moonroof and Entune, which is essentially a suite of mobile applications and data services that connect you with your Prius.
All Prius models come standard with a host of safety features, such as advanced multi-stage airbags, stability and traction control, anti-lock brakes with brake assist, a tire pressure monitor and more.

For 2015, the Toyota Prius receives few changes. Among them, a rear camera is now standard, while a new Persona Series trim adds special appearance items.
The Prius has set the standard for hybrid powertrains in the U.S. since it was introduced. The current model is the most efficient, most reliable Prius yet and has proven to be an amazing bargain.
With several Prius variations from which to choose, there's a Prius for every buyer. Anyone who thought the original Prius was too small should look for the Prius v. Customers looking to maximize their fuel economy would be advised to consider the Prius Plug-in. Both feature Toyota's reliable, efficient hybrid technology at a reasonable price. The Prius c is an even more cost-conscious hybrid for those looking to maximize fuel economy.
