Toyota Prius Prime Laughs Off Tesla Model S & BMW i3
The Prius Prime is Toyota’s latest invention and it is also the first ever Prius to rely on a PHEV powertrain. Despite still not being a pure EV, the Prius Prime is being compared to other pure electric vehicles including those from the high-end market.
In terms of performance and style, the Prius Prime is nowhere near the Tesla Model S or BMW i3. The car from Tesla is proven to be stylish and quick off the line. The i3, on the other hand, is a car from BMW and that says it all.
Even so, that did not stop the Prius Prime from having better ratings than both the Model S and i3 in certain departments. Among them is safety, something which the Prius Prime is the best at when compared to every other green vehicle in the market.
Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded the Prius Prime with Top Safety Pick+ award before embarrassing both the Model S and i3 for having weak safety. You can check out IIHS comments in the video below.
