The Toyota Prius is a full hybrid and a mid sized vehicle that has been labeled as one of the most fuel efficient vehicles being sold within the United States.
The EPA has also given this car ratings that make it one of the most clean vehicles to be sold within the United States as well.
Although this vehicle was first sold in Japan more than 10 years ago, also being the first hybrid vehicle to be mass produced, it later would be introduced into the American markets as well. Sales have gone beyond the million vehicle mark, and incredibly, the United States market has made up more than half of the worldwide sales when it comes to the Prius.
The newest model of the Toyota Prius Hybrid, the ZVW30 recently came out, and the sales of this model began last year in Japan.
It has a whole new body design that has better aerodynamics, which helps with the reduction of drag on the vehicle and it provides a rear fin under the body that helps to keep the vehicle more stable at speeds that are higher.
It is estimated that this vehicle provides 50 mpg in fuel mileage, and the official ratings have made it the most efficient liquid fuel vehicle.
It's not just the great gas mileage that will help you to go green with this car. In these new vehicles produced by Toyota, they are now using bioplastic that are plant derived instead of using petroleum based plastics. This is a great breakthrough for the company and for the bioplastics business as a whole.
For the new Prius, within the United States, the base price will be over $22,000. Included with this price are alloy wheels, cruise control, audio with six speakers, keyless entry, stability control, audio controls, and more.
There are three different optional packages that are available as well:
