FYI:

 

2020 Prius Prime (PHEV) is now available for orders. I told Toyota last year to change white plastic to black and to make it 5 seater instead of 4.

 

I guess I was not the only one who suggested that. They've listened and acted accordingly.

This sounds good for someone that is only driving around 50kms a day. Petrol / Hybrid will kick in when going on longer drives. 

 

Pricing and the current finance offer is very attractive too. 

 

Not sure about the shape of the car though, looks odd.

10 year transferable battery warranty, so that's not bad.

While I still would prefer to have the simplicity, and low maintenance, of an EV, the Prius transaxle "hybrid drive" has been historically more reliable than a conventional automatic transmission.

To me its styling is a bit busy and garish, and it sits a little too low for practicality, perhaps Toyota overcompensating for its pedestrian reputation.

Anyhow here's a 15 minute video
