toyota prius c

SMART AND ECO-FRIENDLY

The innovative Toyota Prius c was the first environmentally friendly hybrid car to be sold on the island. And with lower customs duty and fuel costs, the stylish 5-seater compact is friendly on your wallet too. 

Toyota’s smart Hybrid Synergy Drive system regulates output from the engine and electric motor to ensure low emissions, maximum fuel efficiency and outstanding performance. The Prius is so smart it doesn’t even need plugging in – just driving it generates battery power!

Starting smoothly and quietly in emission-free electric EV Drive mode, the 1.5-liter engine then shifts into ECO Drive mode for optimum power and acceleration.  Deceleration regenerates the battery and when the Prius c comes to a complete halt, the engine and motor automatically stop, saving on fuel consumption, but respond immediately when you put your foot on the accelerator.

The Prius will save you money the minute you drive it out of the showroom. With a lower duty rate of 35%, the Prius c, will save you money on fuel, with fuel mileage of up to 58 miles per gallon (mpg), compared to 35 mpg for a similar car.

In fact, if you drive an average of 8,000 miles a year, you’ll only need to fill up at the pumps once a month instead of twice – and that can add up to savings of $750 a year or $7,500 over 10 years!**.

(** Based on 9.5 gallon tank, $8.25 per gallon fuel cost and average 8,000 miles driving per year.)
