Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid Review Electric driving for about a dozen miles, then a regular ol#039; 50-mpg Prius Styling The Toyota Prius maintains an iconic status as the quintessential hybrid gas-electric car. That dates back to the introduction of the second-generation Prius a decade ago, when Toyota unveiled the car’s signature aerodynamic shape. It is unmistakable on the road. Critics disparage it as dorky, appliance-like, jellybean, or just plain ugly. Fans defend it as tech-chic or space age, and point to its very low air resistance (and the resulting efficiency) as its underlying inspiration. No matter how you slice it, the style of the Prius is decidedly not sleek and sporty. ...

Toyota Prius — Power Split Device

Toyota Prius — Power Split Device (PSD) The Toyota Prius is packed with some pretty high-tech stuff, but at the heart of the Hybrid Synergy Drive (HSD) is a simple little device called the Power Split Device, or PSD. The PSD is a planetary gear set that removes the need for a traditional stepped gearbox and transmission components, and also the familiar rev-lurch-rev-lurch of acceleration in an ordinary gas powered car. It acts as a continuously variable transmission (CVT) but with a fixed gear ratio. If you have no mathematical or mechanical understanding of hybrid technology or even regular engine components, this will help you get a feel for how the PSD allows the car to use power ...

Replacing A Dead Prius Hybrid Battery Doesn’t Have To Cost Thousands Of…

Replacing A Dead Prius Hybrid Battery Doesn’t Have To Cost Thousands Of Dollars I love the Toyota Prius. I bought my Prius brand new from a dealership in Waterford, MI in the fall of 2005. It is the only car I have ever kept until the loan was paid off, and even then I was in no hurry to sell or replace it. Then the hybrid battery died. Up until that point, however, the Prius was a dream car. It’s a compact car and appears small from the outside, but the interior and cargo space are deceptively spacious. You wouldn’t think of it as “sporty” per se, but between you and me it’s got some zip. We put over 100,000 miles on the car over the past eight years, and the only maintenance ...

While Audi uses a 4.0-liter ...
