Going green is still just as popular as ever and the automotive industry is answering the demand with a slew of plug-in hybrid options available for the 2017 model year. Toyota has responded by expanding their popular Prius model lineup with a plug-in option called the Prius Prime. The 2017 Prius Prime is equipped with both a battery and engine meaning you won’t get stuck no matter how far you have to drive. If you ever run out of charge the engine will kick right in until you can recharge again. How long does it take to charge the 2017 Prius Prime? Find out below.
How long does it take to charge the 2017 Prius Prime?
The 2017 Prius Prime has a battery that can support approximately 25 miles of electric-only driving before needing a recharge. This is a longer range than previous Prius Prime models and works great for short commutes and running errands around town. If you combine the 11.3-gallon fuel tank the 2017 Prius Prime should be able to take you about 640 miles. The 2017 Prius Prime can be recharged in a regular 120-volt wall socket and should take about five and a half hours for a full charge. If you can charge your 2017 Prius Prime in a 240-volt charger the time can be shortened to a little more than two hours.
