The trendiest vehicles on the road today are hybrids, cars and trucks powered by drive trains that use both internal combustion engines and electric motors for propulsion. The two current strategies are "full hybrids", which can operate under internal combustion power only, electric power only, or a combination of the two, and "light hybrids", which use an electric motor to aid the internal combustion engine when necessary.

Not only are Toyota Hybrid Cars and Toyota Hybrid Trucks more economical than similar vehicles with standard gas burning engines,but they are more fun to drive. Quiet and stealthy but with enough power to do their job, the Hybrid makes driving fun again.

2010 Toyota Prius Hybrid Review By John Heilig
The new Prius is bigger than its predecessor, but not by much. It is more economical though, even with a bigger engine. You have to look hard to notice the subtle changes in styling, but they are there. The new model overcomes some of the deficiencies of the older one, which is one of the reasons for a redesign.

2005 Toyota Prius Hybrid Review By Marc Rauch
There was a time when I hated driving in heavy traffic, such as the years I spent commuting from Queens to Manhattan. The 13-mile trip from Flushing to W.48th Street, by way of the BQE and Midtown Tunnel, would take between one-and-a-half to two-hours, each way. This meant that my average speed was 6.5 to 9 miles-per-hour, slower than you'd drive through a parking lot. Complete Toyota Prius Hybrid Review

I emerged from my home contemplating a grocery list. The car sensors detected when I walked up and unlocked itself. Pushing the POWER button , the car silently started.

2001 Toyota Prius Hybrid Review by Brendan Hagin and Mikele Schappell-Hagin
Hybrid cars are definitely a hot item, with more and more manufacturers producing their own versions of the modern gas-saver. Taking a design cue from its old sub-compact Tercel, Toyota has really hit the jackpot with the 2001 Prius. This high-mileage vehicle is a money-saving commuter as well as a practical road trip traveler. Utilizing a gas-and-electric drivetrain, the Prius can take a 30-something workaholic to and from the daily grind with reliability and speed, or transport the family to dinner and a movie, as long as the kids are small and relatively lightweight.

Any vehicle with EPA estimated mileage ratings of 52 city and 45 highway has to attract your attention. And when you realize that the city rating is higher than the highway rating, you know something is going on.
This week's tester indeed has those ratings. It's the Toyota Prius, a hybrid gas/electric sedan that seats four and will do anything any other small sedan can do.

Electric cars do not appear to be a viable alternative for the family sedan. Battery technology is limited by energy density, with gasoline have a 10 to 1 edge in energy density over batteries. Pure battery powered electric cars will always be limited in range to well under 100 miles and will take hours to be refueled, i.e., resupplied with electrons. But Toyota has a better idea. What if we combine the best of battery technology and with an extremely clean running conventional gasoline engine? The answer is a very high tech, high mileage four door sedan Toyota named the Prius with reasonably good performance. . Complete Toyota Prius Hybrid Review
