[video] 2019 Toyota Prius Prime gas mileage review – month 1 of ownership

produced by john c ashworth

The Toyota Prius Prime is a great car. It feels like a little rocket ship. A fun and efficient way to get around town. I Love this car!

Below is a quick less than 2-minute video documenting the first month of gas mileage.

I have not been to a gas station since I bought the car a little more than a month ago. I have only used a quarter tank of gas. Generally, I drive less than the 25 miles per day.

The 2019 Toyota Prius Prime will give you 25-30 miles on one full charge of the battery, which takes about 5.5 hours on a standard 120 volt outlet. Only about an hour and a half on the 220 volt outlet.

Bottom Line: overall, using your electric battery as much as possible – and you’ll want to, because the driving experience is incredible…no, uplifting. Combined with the independent rear suspension, the only way you’ll know you’re not inside a luxury car is that you’ll hear more road noise than you would, in say, a Lexus. But nothing out of the ordinary and this one is even quieter than our 2017 Toyota Prius 4. Also a terrific car, by the way.

Enjoy this short video about the 2019 Toyota Prius Prime.


[video] How to adjust text message volume on iPhone in your 2019 Toyota Prius Prime Plus

My most popular #youtube video to date is the one I did a few years back about how to setup text messaging on your #iphone in your Toyota.

This is a follow-up to that video:

“How to adjust the text message readout and alert tone volume in your #Toyota #Prius #Prime.”

The Toyota Entune system seems pretty much the same as my 2015 Camry, 2017 Toyota Prius, and this 2019 Prime.

The #Prime is the electric version of the Prius and is a beautiful combination of gas and electric power sources. This one goes up to 25-30 miles on the electric battery. Very cool. Currently getting a combined total of about 135 miles per gallon because I mainly get around most days on the electric motor, which is a terrific #driving experience. Lots of #fun. Like traveling in a commuter rocket ship đź™‚

More on all that soon…
