So, yeah, it gets its power from the sun. Seriously. You don't believe me? Ok, park it out in the sun while you're at work in Carson. Make sure it will be a nice, sunny day with no clouds in sight. And when you come back to your car, if your battery doesn't have more power, then I'll buy you a new car. A new house. And pay you my annual salary. And if it does? Well, *rubs hands together* we can just say you owe me.

Exterior Design

As your virtual assistant, there's no way I would make that deal unless I knew, unequivocally, that the 2023 Toyota Prius Prime has solar-powered capability. So, here it is. This model features roof-mounted solar panels to recharge your battery when parked. As long as there is sun in Cerritos, Torrance, or Signal Hill, your car will replenish its power. Without you plugging in anything. And then, of course, you're gonna' bring sexy back with the aerodynamic front end and available 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels. And that's just the beginning. How's that for design?

Interior Comfort

Inside, you'll have a driver-centric design with cloth upholstery and heated front seats at the base level. Upgrades include synthetic leather upholstery, eight-way power sport seats, and an easy-to-reach infotainment screen to make your commute more relaxing. The welcome light extends from the door to the responsive glow across the dashboard. And that flows right into the safety and technology the Prius Prime has to offer.

Technology and Safety

The 8-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto™ connections are standard and six USB-C ports. Upgrades to the SE or XSE Premium include a 11.6 or 12.3-inch touchscreen, respectively. A premium JBL audio system and Toyota's Intelligent Assistant.

The Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 (TSS) adds a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection. This standout feature will detect vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, motorcycles, and more. And that can be the difference between an unfortunate accident and smooth sailing in Long Beach, CA. Blind spot monitoring, parking assistance, and a variety of driver assistance features are added to TSS.

Performance

The larger 2.0L engine and newly developed lithium-ion batteries are new for the 2023 Prius Prime. The improved battery will increase the Prius Prime's all-electric range by more than 50 percent, making the range just shy of 40 miles. Each Prime comes with available all-wheel drive for more stability and three drive modes to optimize performance and fuel efficiency.
