2019 Toyota Prius Prime: Preview & Release Date

, Senior Pricing Analyst - May 18, 2018

Model Preview

The Toyota Prius Prime is expected to be a carryover for 2019. Although official specs haven’t been announced, we think it’s likely that the car will see no significant changes.

As a plug-in hybrid, the current car offers up to 25 miles of driving on pure electric power, with a combined range of 640 miles with the on-board gas engine.

Next to the 53-mile Chevy Volt, the Prime’s key weaknesses are its range and 4-seat configuration, which limits some of its versatility. There’s no indication yet that either is changing.

Official pricing is expected to become available in November 2018. We currently anticipate a release date falling sometime in December of this year.

In terms of incentives, the Prime benefits from a $4,502 federal tax credit. In California, most buyers & lessees are also eligible for a Clean Vehicle Rebate worth $1,500.

Safety is a strong selling point, with auto emergency braking standard in all versions. However, we’ve seen no indication that the car will gain the latest version of this system, dubbed Safety Sense 2.0, which adds a more advanced lane departure monitor and detection of road signs and cyclists.

This page will be updated as new information is released.

Key competitors include the Chevy Volt and Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid.
