The new 2021 Toyota Prius Prime Limited offers a near silent no-gas EV mode (when charged), combined with Toyota’s value and durability and as a result, it’s become one of the world’s best-selling hybrid vehicles.

Essentially, the Prius Prime takes everything people love about the world’s best-selling hybrid vehicle and adds an estimated 25 miles of EV driving range (when fully charged). That’s sufficient enough to handle daily commuting distances for many U.S. drivers.
