There are two components of the Prius powertrain, and that includes a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor that's powered by a nickel-metal hydride battery. Most often, the motor works in tandem with the engine, and with both power sources running the hybrid, the Prius manages to go as far as 51 mpg in the city and 48 mpg on the highway, giving it a combined rating of 50 mpg. To ensure that you get the most out of the Prius, it comes standard with three driving modes, allowing you to choose whether power comes from the engine, the motor or a combination of the two.
As if the efficiency of the Toyota Prius wasn't enough, the hybrid never has to be charged. One of the many innovative systems that help the Prius to run is a regenerative braking system. Whenever you brake, or whenever you're coasting, your vehicle loses precious kinetic energy. Toyota realized this and found a way to capture it. In the Prius, that kinetic energy is collected and used to charge the battery, which means that you charge up while you go, allowing the motor to run at all times.
