The History of the Prius

With so many new things to offer drivers, it is easy to lose sight of the Prius’ rich history. To understand the Prius, you must first understand what the word means in Latin. It means “to go before,” and that is exactly what the Prius has done. The Prius proved that fuel efficiency and style can be rolled into one, and other manufacturers have been trying to catch up since the vehicle debuted in 1997.

It was originally supposed to hit Japan’s dealerships in 1999, but Toyota sped up the launch so it would make its debut at the Kyoto Conference on Global Warming. The automaker realized that the Prius could become part of the conversation and the solution, so it needed to get the vehicle on car lots sooner.

The first Prius went from 0-60 in 14.1 seconds and had a lower mpg, but it was just the springboard for what was to come. The automaker knew it had to give it more power before it made it to U.S. markets, so it went back to the drawing board and make some important changes. It went from 0-60 in 13 seconds flat when it hit dealerships in the United States, proving that Toyota had the innovation necessary to bring efficiency to other regions in the world.

In 2012, Toyota added a plug-in model that drove on electricity alone. Then, it decided to move over to the crossover market with the Prius by adding the Prius V to the line. With 6 extra inches, it made the Prius perfect for family road trips.

Today, the Prius can go 0-60 in 10.5 seconds and reaches top speeds of 114 mph. This proves that the future is bright for the Prius.
