Toyota Prius: Original Innovator

The standard Toyota Prius is the original innovator. It has a similar size and comparable characteristic to the first Prius models. It uses a powerful battery to charge the electric motor, but when that battery is depleted, the Prius transitions to an engine. 

Toyota Prius v: The Big Brother

The Prius v is the largest member of the Prius family, carrying more cargo space and more storage options. With a larger profile, the Prius v is more noticeable thanks to a straight roofline, as opposed to an arching shape on the other Prius cars. The Prius v has the same engine as the standard Prius and even with the larger profile, it still gets great gas mileage.

Toyota Prius c: The Little Brother

The Toyota Prius c is the little brother of the family. Thanks to the smaller profile, it's perfect for people who need a reliable, efficient city car. The Prius c holds a smaller engine than the standard Prius. With a lighter profile and smaller engine, the Prius c gets the best fuel-economy during in-city driving. 

Toyota Prius Pug-in Hybrid: The Eccentric

The Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid has a similar body style to the standard Prius, but uses an entirely different system to power the vehicle. While the other Prius models capture braking energy to power the electric motor, the Plug-in Hybrid is plugged into an outlet to charge the battery.
