You've probably heard quite a bit about the emerging Prius Plug-In. And you already know everything about the Toyota Prius v. Chances are, you've probably even taken a ride in the original Prius hatchback. But answer this, How much do you know about the brand-new Prius c?
If you're answer to this question is "not much," that's ok with us. By the end of this post Tansky Toyota will have you spitting out Prius c facts like it's your job. For starters, we'll let you in on a little secret...the "c" tells all. That's because the "c" stands for "city." Marketed at a young urban demographic, the Prius c is smaller, more lightweight and cheaper than its hybrid siblings. All these qualities make the model ideal for young professionals but also for city-dwellers looking for an eco-friendly, attractive commute.
Bob Carter, Group Vice President for U.S. sales, notes, "It's going to appeal to a younger buyer at a price that's more affordable. It will add substantial incremental sales to Prius this year."1 Just how much will it add? Company officials say that Toyota will sell as many as 40,000 units this year. That's pretty impressive considering the Prius c doesn't officially hit dealerships like Tansky Toyota until March.
Getting down to the specifics, the Prius c subcompact comes at a price tag of only $18,950 and achieves a fuel-economy rating of 53 mpg city/46 mpg hwy/50 mpg combined. In order to reach such numbers, Toyota cut off a whopping 542 pounds from the standard Prius and reduced its height by 19 inches.
