I purchased a Classic Prius (hybrid-electric, fuel-efficient,
super-ultra-low-emission vehicle) back on 9/9/2000 and drove it in Minnesota
until I replaced it on 10/23/2003 with an Iconic Prius (which was even cleaner and
more efficient). Then on 5/26/2009, I upgraded to a 2010 Prius (for
amazing efficiency). Following that on 2/29/2012, I got my first plug-in
model (pushing MPG significantly higher). The big upgrade happened
4/01/2017, when I replaced the PHV with a Prime, trading 11 miles of EV driving
for 25. The great driving experience continues, after
all that time...
|Classic Prius Lifetime MPG at 59,827 miles was: 45.4|
|Iconic Prius Lifetime MPG at 118,185 miles was: 47.7|
|2010 Prius Lifetime MPG at 55,835 miles was: 50.0|
|Prius PHV Lifetime MPG at 92,012 miles was: 71.1|
|Prius Prime most recent tank refill MPG measured: 80.0 tank data|
|Prius Prime Lifetime MPG as of 63,759 miles was: 116.0|
