In old age, the Toyota Prius is distinctly less popular now than it was in 2007, in second-gen form when fuel prices were a concern and the core Prius Liftback didn’t have competition from Toyota’s other Prii, the smaller Prius C and larger Prius V.
But it’s still ridiculously efficient, as Alex Dykes of Alex On Autos attests during this video review of the 2015, third-generation Prius.
181,221 copies of the Prius were sold in 2007, when U.S. sales peaked. Toyota won’t likely sell more than 115,000 Prius Liftbacks in the United States in 2015.
Incidentally, preceding this Prius video review at GCBC is our own highway fuel economy review of the 2015 Chevrolet Volt. The Prius outsells that car by about ten-to-one.
