2017 Toyota Prius Prime Real World Gas Mileage, Electric Range Review

The 2017 Toyota Prius Prime is an automotive enigma. It proudly flaunts its eco-friendly credentials, yet its factory-rated 25 miles of electric range simply pales in comparison to the 53 miles advertised by the Chevrolet Volt.

I hopped into a Titanium Glow (think beige) 2017 Prius Prime for a three-day visit to Dallas for the State Fair of Texas. Although Toyota is now a major employer in North Texas—its American-market headquarters recently opened in suburban Plano—I was in town to see some new pickup trucks debut at the State Fair.

Between Big Tex, fried everything, and shiny pickup after shiny pickup, Dallas' historic Fair Park is the antithesis of Prius country for a few weeks each fall.

When I picked up the Prius, it had a full tank of gas but no charge left on its battery. I was only able to fully charge it once, but I put about 120 miles on in three days of varied driving.
