Toyota Prius Hybrid Car


Toyota Prius Hybrid Car

The 2004 Prius is a far more technologically advanced automobile than its predecessor, with a new hybrid drive train that provides more power with even better fuel economy. Toyota achieved 55 mpg in this larger, heavier Prius by using better aerodynamics and a more efficient regenerative braking system, which transfers the car's kinetic energy into battery power as it slows down. Peak electric power is up by 50 percent and is pushed through a continuously variable transmission. The car won't win many drag races, but it can keep up with other midsize sedans. More important, it may be the first car to convince Americans that hybrid technology has arrived, its benefits are profound, and its drawbacks almost nil. $20,000.
