Car of the Future is here
By xkater on
2003 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
The Prius is amazing. It uses the best
combination of engine, electric motor
and battery to propell the itself. It
recovers energy during braking and it
minimizes engine use while stopped. I
average 45 mi/gallon in the city and
about 50 miles per gallon while
traveling long distances. It is gentler
to the environment and to my pocket.
Touch-screen computer display to
monitor consumption and energy transfer.
When the engine kicks in or out, it
could do it a bit smoother, but it is
not a big problem.
