Learn about the Family of Prius Vehicles at Dolan Toyota

Getting on the greener side of the automotive fence is absolutely a good feeling - you'll be doing good for the planet and your wallet! - and, if you ask us, the Prius hybrid car family is an excellent place to start. Of course, even the Prius lineup has some variations that could be confusing to someone with a new interest in hybrid cars, so allow us here at Dolan Toyota to give you the details on what makes the Prius models different.



First up is the main Toyota Prius. This is the original Prius model, the granddaddy of them all, and it's a compact hatchback car that's exceptionally cost-efficient when it comes to your stops at the pump. This Prius sits right in the middle of the range in terms of size, so it's the perfect starting point.

The Prius c is smaller than the main Prius; an easy way to remember is that "c" could stand for "city," as its subcompact size and maneuverability makes it an excellent urban model. It boasts essentially all the same high-tech features of the standard Prius model but comes at an even more affordable starting price, making it an appealing option for first-time hybrid buyers that tend to ride alone or with just one passenger.

On the other end of the spectrum is the Prius v. Larger than the main Prius model, the Prius v is more like a wagon than a hatchback thanks to its extended rear cargo area. If you have a small family that's always on the go, then the increased interior capacity of the Prius v could be an easy and affordable replacement to a larger, more expensive crossover or SUV.

Last but certainly not least is the Prius Prime. Essentially offering the same features as the main Prius model, the Prius Prime differentiates itself by being a plug-in hybrid, allowing you to travel further on battery power alone when the gasoline runs dry. Capable of providing a driving range of up to 640 miles, the Prius Prime could change the way you think about gas stations for the rest of your life!

There's a lot more to learn about each of these Prius models, so drop in to see us today and explore our entire new Toyota Prius model selection at your leisure. We hope to see you soon and get you behind the wheel of something as spectacular as it is satisfying.
