The core of the  Toyota Prius 2013 electric car is its Hybrid Synergy Drive system. It synergizes the car’s gas engine with its electric motor to get minimum emission  and maximum performance.

Each power unit either supports the other or takes over completely, depending on the driving situation.

The Hybrid Synergy Drive kicks in whenever you need more power, you accelerate hard or cruise at high speed.

Add torque to supplement the power of its 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, two motor-generators plus a battery that recharges through normal driving, and you have a magnificent electric car that is superb fuel efficiency.

Electric Car Reviews for the Toyota Prius 2013

Motor Trend: “If fuel efficiency is your chief concern when shopping for a new electric car, the 2013 Toyota Prius’ 51/48 mpg city/highway EPA rating will likely satisfy you. Drivers who want an engaging driving experience, however, need not apply.”

 autoblog: “The Toyota Prius electric car is practical and efficient with plenty of cargo space, but newer competitors are nipping at the heels of this perennial favorite.”

Auto Guide: “On paper it fails to excite, preferring instead to deliver results in the real world and for that reason it is likely the best green option on the market.”

Edmunds: “Pros: Superior fuel efficiency; abundant backseat room; spacious cargo area; comfortable ride; available high-tech luxury goodies; strong safety scores. Cons: Awkward driving position for some; disappointing interior materials; elevated amounts of road noise; slow acceleration; busy-looking gauge cluster.”
