Toyota continues to wow its audiences with a myriad of accessibility options. For the Prius Prime, everything is centered around the massive 11.6-inch touchscreen that acts as an infotainment hub for all of the passengers.

The outstanding fuel efficiency is what leads most drivers towards a Prius, and the 2021 Prius Prime showcases the absolute best in electric vehicle technology. This model uses a dual motor drive system that gives you an aggressive acceleration feel, but with the additional benefit of the electric motor kicking in at high speeds.
