Be aware of what’s around you. As you park, available Intelligent Clearance Sonar is designed to scan for stationary objects like walls or posts that are within close proximity. If Prius Prime anticipates a collision, an audible and visual alert will be emitted, engine or motor output reduced, and if needed, the brakes will automatically be applied to help bring Prius Prime to a halt.
Available Intelligent Parking Assist helps you navigate and conquer those difficult parking situations with the push of a button. Prius Prime automatically controls the steering wheel while you control the gas, gears and brake to help guide you into an open parking space.
Prius Prime’s available color Head-Up Display uses aircraftinspired technology to project information about your drive on the windshield, where it’s convenient to see. Easily view the current speed, energy monitor, turn-by-turn navigation directions, battery charge, and Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) 29 alerts — all without taking your eyes off the road.
Prius Prime also offers two other driving modes so that the driver stays in control: EV Auto Mode 53 and HV Mode. EV Auto Mode intelligently selects between EV and hybrid driving based on demand and driving conditions to optimize your efficiency. HV Mode efficiently combines the gas engine and electrical power from the HV battery to drive Prius Prime.
With a charged battery, the driver can experience electrifying performance. Prius Prime features a Toyota-first dual motor generator drive system that gives a fun acceleration feel and enables electric driving mode at full highway speeds. The system’s output and regeneration conditions are clearly displayed in real-time on the MID, so you can see your efficiency in action.
