2019 Toyota Prius Prime OVERVIEW

The 2019 Toyota Prius Prime takes everything that's great about the regular Prius, but adds the ability to travel up to 25 miles on nothing but electricity. The plug-in hybrid can also be charged at a charging station or from a standard outlet, which is something the normal Prius can't do. For consumers looking to get in on the electric future who don't want to worry about range anxiety, the Prius Prime's ability to run on both electricity and gasoline makes it a better option than a pure electric vehicle.

What's New for 2019

The Prius Prime enters the new year without any significant changes.

Choosing Your Toyota Prius Prime

The Prius Prime's plug-in hybrid powertrain consists of a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that's paired to a continuously variable transmission. Giving the plug-in hybrid its electrified abilities is a 53-kilowatt electric motor and an 8.8-kWh battery pack. Combined output for the entire system is 121 horsepower. Front-wheel drive is standard.

When acting as a hybrid, the Prius Prime is rated by the EPA to get up to 54 miles per gallon combined. On electricity, the vehicle gets 133 miles per gallon of gasoline equivalent (MPGe). Speaking of electricity, the Prius Prime can travel 25 miles without using any gasoline. When electricity runs out, the vehicle can travel an extra 615 miles on gasoline for a total range of 640 miles.

Charging the Prius Prime doesn't take too long, but the times vary depending on what kind of voltage you're using. A standard 120-volt outlet will yield a fully charged battery in five hours and 30 minutes. Using a 240-volt charger brings that time down to two hours and 10 minutes.

The Prius Prime is available in three trims with no packages available across the range:


Pricing for the base Prius Prime Plus starts at $28,280 (all prices include the $930 destination charge). Standard exterior features include quad-LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, LED taillights, heated side mirrors, and 15-inch wheels. On the inside, the Plus trim comes with a 4.2-inch multi-information display, a SofTex-trimmed steering wheel, fabric-trimmed seats, heated front seats, push-button start, a 7-inch touchscreen, Toyota's Entune infotainment system, Bluetooth, Siri Eyes Free, and SiriusXM.

When it comes to safety, the Plus trim comes with Toyota's Safety Sense P system as standard, which includes forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning with steering assist, automatic high beams, and adaptive cruise control.


Moving up to the mid-level Premium trim costs $29,980. Over the base trim, it brings a smart charging cable lock, predictive efficient drive, SofTex-trimmed seats, a Smart Key System, wireless charging, an 11.6-inch touchscreen, and navigation.


The range-topping Advanced trim starts at $34,280. It adds LED fog lights, LED accent lights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a heated steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a universal garage door opener, a JBL audio system, 10 audio speakers, Safety Connect, a head-up display, a surround-view camera, park assist, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert over lower trims.

CarsDirect Tip

While not as tech forward as some of the other electrified options on the road, the 2019 Toyota Prius Prime gives consumers the option to switch between traveling on electricity and gasoline, which makes range anxiety obsolete. It might not have the range to compete with the Chevrolet Volt, but it's much more affordable and is well equipped in the mid-range Premium trim.
