2017 Toyota Prius Prime Canadian Release Date
Today at the New York International Auto Show, Toyota stunned those in attendance by unveiling a brand-new version of their always-popular hybrid vehicle, slated to replace the older plug-in model that had fallen off the radar. But they don’t plan on simply calling it the Prius Plug-in, no. Instead, they’ve created a whole new model with a fitting name – the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime. We don’t yet know when its Canadian release date will be, but we assure you we cannot wait for the date.

The brand-new Toyota Prius Prime will offer the best of multiple roads, giving you an abundance of efficient options when you get behind the wheel. Not only can you operate the vehicle in full electric mode for roughly twice the distance of the previous plug-in Prius, but you can also fill up its 11.5-gallon tank with fuel, and seamlessly switch between both to drive a class-leading 965 kilometres, perhaps even more.
Early Specs & Features of the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime
The new Prius Prime doesn’t just represent the best in efficient driving, but the best in everything else too. It seems as if Toyota is trying to make the Prius Prime a flagship hybrid vehicle of sorts, by stuffing it full of its best specs and features. A near-12-inch display audio screen, even more advanced safety features than the new Toyota Safety Sense package, and an estimated combined fuel economy of 1.96 Le/100km (Litres equivalent per 100 kilometres) or lower all combine to create one of the most exciting vehicles we’ve ever heard of.
Not to mention just how stylish and aerodynamic the design of the vehicle is. We thought that the design enhancements on the regular all-new 2016 Toyota Prius were impressive, but the additions made to this new model are outstanding! The design, the incredible specifications, the great safety and entertainment features – everything added together will surely deliver one of the best hybrid vehicles we’ve ever had the pleasure of offering.
As more detailed information about the brand-new 2017 Toyota Prius Prime becomes available – in particular its official Canadian release date – we’ll be sure to let you know either right here on the Wheaton Toyota on the Trail blog, or via our social media accounts, so be sure to stay tuned!
