Toyota Prius: It has been a bestseller for a number of years

It debuted in 1997 and was unlike anything else on four wheels. Guaranteed informed choice of Toyota. It’s the Prius we’re talking about. The first hybrid car. Hence the eco car.

A hybrid powertrain that utilizes a battery pack, electric motor, and energy regeneration has been an innovative and innovative environmental technology for the last 25 years. Therefore, it was also important to have a distinctive design. People should see that here came a different car.

The first Prius, called the Series 1, was produced between 1997 and 2003 and never fully took off. Suspicion about technology and looks that are hard for a mom to love should take some of the blame for that.

Special: The first-generation Toyota Prius wasn’t just a feast for the eyes.

When Series 2 (2003-2009) came along, something happened. The cars got a look that was (slightly) easier to like. The technology has been developed further and the Prius has gained a very solid and reliable reputation. It is rarely a bad argument for those customers looking for a new Toyota. In addition, the car saves usable space and was also well priced.

It soon became apparent, in several tests, that the low consumption figures in the manuals did not quite correspond to reality. without putting any significant damper on sales.

A real Toyota oddity – but the beginning of a great success

Then take off…

BAR OF SOAP: Sleek design and low air resistance even though cars use more fuel than stated.

The third generation Prius (2009-2015) has grown slightly in size. Vokste also did the petrol engine work. It was now 1.8 liters, versus 1.5 liters previously. Once again, Toyota makes some moves in the design. The basic shape is much the same, but the smooth bar typical of soap design is scaled down. New headlights and sharp lines on the body sides give the car much-needed character.

It’s also this generation of Prius that really “goes off in Norway.” Suddenly they are everywhere…

We tested – we drove half the trip with electricity

The electric car wave is coming

In addition, the car debuted in 2012 as a plug-in hybrid. The Toyota model, surprisingly, gets a bit swept under the rug. The so-called self-charging hybrid is their motto. In the same year, the car appeared in a larger version of the Prius + Seven, with up to seven seats. Not least the taxi industry puts its love on this.

In 2015, the fourth generation Prius appeared. Now there has really been a breakthrough when it comes to design. Again, this is disputed, but there’s no question the car stands out – if nothing else. The car is available as a regular plug-in hybrid and a rechargeable variant called Prime.

Electric cars are slowly making their way into the Norwegian fleet and Prius sales are suffering a bit because of this. Sales are going down. It’s the Nissan Leaf, VW e-Golf, and Kia Soul—not least the benefits that come with these electric cars—many people want.

Buying a used Prius cab? It may be wise

Meeting resistance: Electric cars are making their way and fourth-generation Prius sales are suffering a bit because of this.

New is coming – but not to Norway

The Toyota Hybrid System is constantly undergoing further development throughout its life cycle and vehicles are constantly improving in terms of consumption and emissions. The hybrid powertrain also appears on many other models over time. In everything from the Yaris and Auris, through the RAV4 and the big Camry. Hybrid like Toyota. This has been the case for many years and this is still in part.

Preparations are now underway to launch an all-new fifth generation Prius. Now only rechargeable. Read more about it here: He will not come to Norway. Here at the Mountain, the focus is entirely on the all-electric powertrain.

There are now only a few new Toyota Prius left at some dealers. Soon these will be gone.

New Arrival: The fifth-generation Prius suddenly looks tough, but it's not coming to Norway.

That’s what they cost to use

If you’re going to have a Prius from now on, you’ll have to dig around the flea market. This is not buying a stupid used car. Although the cars are not very exciting in terms of driving pleasure, they offer, in familiar Toyota style, operational reliability and top quality. Anyway, as long as they don’t go too far and are well followed along the way.

The cheapest one on the used car market is now available at around NOK 30,000. Then we talk about cars between 15 and 17 years old that have passed 250,000 km with a good lag.

For NOK 100,000 you get a well-equipped 10-year-old Prius that has just over 100,000 km. If the car is well taken care of, it can still be a great car for a reasonable amount of money.

For a one-year, rechargeable Prius with a mileage of 10,000 km, you have to pay about NOK 350,000. It’s not worse.
