They’re some of the two biggest names in the world of automobiles: the Toyota Prius and Tesla. Tesla has been making headlines for all kinds of innovations; for example, the company’s solar powered roofs are expected to be less expensive than current roofing methods. When it comes to cars, however, do Tesla’s cars match up to the Toyota Prius? Look below to find out!
Toyota’s new Prius appears to be everything we hoped it would be – inexpensive and environmentally-friendly. With this model, Toyota provides a great alternative to Tesla’s plug-in cars. For one thing, it currently stands at twenty-seven thousand dollars, which is much less than Tesla’s. Even Tesla’s model three, which is considerably inexpensive, costs thirty-five thousand dollars which is eight thousand more than the Toyota Prius. For this reason, if for no other, many are turning to the Toyota Prius for their needs.
But the reasons why you should be choosing the new Toyota Prius go beyond the money. The 2017 Toyota Prius is available across all 50 states of the US. For those who are waiting for their Tesla orders to be filled at the end of 2017 or in 2018, Toyota may be a better option.
The 2017 Toyota Prius has upgraded several of its features; for example, it’s lower than its predecessors. This means that the passengers have more headroom than they would in previous models of the car. Not only this, but the 2017 Prius is sleeker and cleaner than other Prius models. With new LED taillights and a completely redefined look, this plug-in is a dream for anyone who’s looking for an alternative to Tesla.
On the inside, the 2017 Prius Prime has an 11.6-inch screen that mirrors Tesla’s design. This provides the passengers and the driver with a new, technologically-advanced feeling that previous Toyota Prius’ were severely missing. The major downside to the car’s system is that it does not have Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, yet. That being said, there’s always a possibility that it will be included in future models.
Seventy percent of all of Toyota’s hybrid models happen to be Prius’; in fact, Toyota has a total of thirteen hybrid cars that are sold in the United States. On top of its many bonuses, the Toyota Prius Prime is more fuel-efficient than previous Prius’. Given the current cost of gas, along with the greenhouse gas situation our world is facing, this is perhaps one of the most attractive qualities of the new Toyota Prius.
In a world that is becoming more environmentally conscious, hybrid cars are becoming more popular. Most people make the decision to avoid plug-in cars altogether because of the price tag that comes with them, especially if they’re looking at Tesla’s hybrids; however, Toyota has come out with an excellent alternative with the 2017 Toyota Prius. Whether it’s the specs, the overall style, or the affordable price, any hybrid lover or anyone interested in hybrids should be looking at the 2017 Toyota Prius for their transportation needs.
