In a recent inquiry into cars that run on diesel, electricity, natural gas, and other non-gasoline fuels, Forbes writer Hannah Elliott spent some time behind the wheel of the Toyota Prius, Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt, Honda CR-Z Hybrid, and more. Her impression – the 2011 Prius is still the gold standard.
As Elliot explains, “…If you want a high-efficiency vehicle that has lots of cargo space and is extremely reliable, easy to use, and practical as a daily driver, the Prius wins on all counts.”
Elliot also notes that the new 2011 Prius offered a more spacious interior than the Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt, and Honda CR-Z Hybrid. The new Prius features four doors and a hatchback, making it easier than ever to get passengers and cargo in and out. Another bonus is that unlike the other cars, with the Prius, Elliot says she didn’t have to worry about fuel/power levels while driving.
Los Angeles Toyota Prius Fans Save At The Pump
The Prius has been an uncompromised “full” hybrid since its introduction. This means it can run on the gasoline engine alone, battery alone, or a combination of both. The Hybrid Synergy Drive was completely re-engineered for the third-generation Prius, with lighter, more efficient components.
Los Angeles Toyota shoppers will also be excited to learn that Toyota has once again improved the Prius’s overall fuel economy.
