[video] 2019 Toyota Prius Prime gas mileage review – month 1 of ownership

produced by john c ashworth

The Toyota Prius Prime is a great car. It feels like a little rocket ship. A fun and efficient way to get around town. I Love this car!

Below is a quick less than 2-minute video documenting the first month of gas mileage.

I have not been to a gas station since I bought the car a little more than a month ago. I have only used a quarter tank of gas. Generally, I drive less than the 25 miles per day.

The 2019 Toyota Prius Prime will give you 25-30 miles on one full charge of the battery, which takes about 5.5 hours on a standard 120 volt outlet. Only about an hour and a half on the 220 volt outlet.

Bottom Line: overall, using your electric battery as much as possible – and you’ll want to, because the driving experience is incredible…no, uplifting. Combined with the independent rear suspension, the only way you’ll know you’re not inside a luxury car is that you’ll hear more road noise than you would, in say, a Lexus. But nothing out of the ordinary and this one is even quieter than our 2017 Toyota Prius 4. Also a terrific car, by the way.

Enjoy this short video about the 2019 Toyota Prius Prime.

My most popular #youtube video to date is the one I did a few years back about how to setup text messaging on your #iphone in your Toyota.

This is a follow-up to that video:

“How to adjust the text message readout and alert tone volume in your #Toyota #Prius #Prime.”

The Toyota Entune system seems pretty much the same as my 2015 Camry, 2017 Toyota Prius, and this 2019 Prime.

The #Prime is the electric version of the Prius and is a beautiful combination of gas and electric power sources. This one goes up to 25-30 miles on the electric battery. Very cool. Currently getting a combined total of about 135 miles per gallon because I mainly get around most days on the electric motor, which is a terrific #driving experience. Lots of #fun. Like traveling in a commuter rocket ship đź™‚

More on all that soon…

I was having trouble getting my Toyota Entune text messaging to work recently, so I consulted with one of our experts, Joanna. She helped me figure it out and helped me film this video. I hope you will find it useful. Don’t do what I did, which was make attempts to figure it out while you’re driving. Stop by the dealership and we can help too. Or, just pull over and watch this video.

Toyota Entune text messaging makes it a lot easier and safer to read your text messages when on the go in your Toyota. I love it! I especially love the sound it makes when a text message arrives. Watch the video to hear it for yourself.
