The 2023 Toyota Prius Prime plug-in hybrid is the most powerful model of their Prius lineup. It was officially unveiled alongside the 2023 Toyota Prius models. The new Toyota Prius Prime carries many new premium and exclusive interior and exterior designs to 2023. The brand-new 2023 Toyota Prius Prime is the beginning of a 5th Generation.
Including 2023 Prius Prime, every Prius rides on Toyota’s TNGA-C platform, making it a more eco-friendly vehicle. The 2023 Toyota Prius Prime is less in height, more in width, more in length, and more in performance than previous models.
2023 Toyota Prius Prime is powered by a 2.0L gasoline engine and a Lithium-ion battery pack, installed under the rear seats. As the result, the combination of 2.0L engine and Lithium-ion battery produces 220hp and takes 6.6 seconds to reach 0-60 Mph. That’s near twice the horsepower of the 2022 Toyota Prius Prime, which produces 121 Hp. Toyota hasn’t mentioned how many e-motors will be available. The 2023 Prius Prime may be front-wheel drive. But hopefully, Toyota will introduce an extra-cost all-wheel drive model as well.
Like the 2023 Toyota Prius, Toyota offers the 2023 Prius Prime in three models: SE Grade, XSE Grade, and XSE Premium Grade. Features are different from each of these models. Toyota hasn’t said when the 2023 Prius Prime will go on sale or what the starting price of the 2023 Toyota Prius Prime will be. We expect the base price of the 2023 Toyota Prius Prime to be around $32,000.
