What To Expect

The 2025 Toyota Prius Prime will continue as the plug-in member of the Prius family of high-efficiency hybrid cars. Changes will likely be minimal as the Prius line received a revolutionary redesign for the 2023 model year.

Today's Prius Prime offers athletic styling, spirited performance, and even greater efficiency than previous generations. The hatchback body provides seating for five and up 26.7 cubic feet of cargo space. Current standard features include an 8-inch touchscreen, digital instrumental, power front seats, automatic wipers, and a full complement of driver-assistance technology. Buyers can add a solar glass roof that feeds charge to the battery.

2025 Toyota Prius Prime Engine & Specs

We expect the Prius Prime to retain its current plug-in hybrid powerplant for 2025. The 2.0-liter gas four-cylinder and pair of electric motors produce 220 horsepower and 139 lb-ft of torque. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) sends power to the front wheels.

Thanks to its plug-in technology, the Prius Prime can travel up to 44 miles on electricity alone. The base SE trim is EPA-rated at 127 MPGe combined when powered by electricity and 52 mpg combined when running on gas. The more heavily equipped XSE and XSE Premium models are rated at 144 MPGe combined and 48 mpg combined. Recharging the battery pack takes about 4 hours on a home (Level 2) charger.

2025 Toyota Prius Prime Safety

Like the present model, the 2025 Prius Prime will likely carry the latest version of Toyota Safety Sense, which includes adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, automatic high beams, safe exit warning, and traffic jam assist. Parking sensors and rear automatic braking are standard starting with the XSE. The XSE Premium is available with surround-view cameras and automated parking. Some currently optional safety features could become standard for 2025.

The Prius Prime is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+, the institute's highest designation. NHTSA crash-test results are still pending.

2025 Toyota Prius Prime Price

We expect only an incremental price increase for 2025. The Prius Prime's pricing currently starts at $33,770 including destination and heads to $40,465 for the XSE Premium.

The Prius Prime competes with conventional hybrid compacts such as the Hyundai Elantra Hybrid and upcoming Honda Civic Hybrid, as well as plug-in hybrid versions of small crossovers like the Hyundai Tuscon and Kia Niro.

2025 Toyota Prius Prime Release Date

We anticipate the 2025 Toyota Prius will arrive at dealers in mid-2024. We'll report back before then if further details become available.
