Starting

With a Smart Key 19 fob in your pocket or purse, push the Power button, and you are ready to go. If the battery power is low the gas engine may start instead, otherwise Prius will move on battery power alone. If Prius senses it needs more power than the battery can provide, the gas engine will take over.

More Info

Prius Five shown in Classic Silver Metallic with available Advanced Technology Package. The preceding is based on a likely scenario for optimal driving conditions.

Normal operation

Prius can start moving at lower speeds by using only the electric motor (no gasoline required). As you drive along, the car’s computer will automatically switch from electric to gas, or use a combination of the two to produce the most fuel-efficient driving.

More Info

Regenerative braking

Prius takes advantage of every possible opportunity to harness energy and use it efficiently—and that goes for the braking system too. As you apply the brakes in Prius, you’re making power that will be stored in the system battery for more EV-only operation and increased fuel savings.

More Info

Prius Five shown in Classic Silver Metallic with available Advanced Technology Package. The preceding is based on a likely scenario for optimal driving conditions.

Stopping

When Prius comes to a stop, its gasoline engine shuts off to conserve fuel and reduce emissions. Pressing the gas pedal lightly will move Prius using electricity alone, while more pressure will automatically start the gas engine to provide more power.

Low drag coefficient

Coefficient of Drag (Cd) is a measurement of how effectively a vehicle’s shape slices through the air. The lower its drag coefficient, the more aerodynamic it is, which means it requires less energy to push it through the air. With a Cd of only 0.25, Prius is one of the most aerodynamic production cars in the world.
