New 2019 Toyota Prius AWD-e Starts At $28,990

The Toyota Prius is a pioneer. As the world’s most popular gasoline-electric hybrid vehicle, over the years, it morphed into the popular Prius v and c models but all along, there was one thing missing.

This one single element will surely entice countless consumers to finally buy a Prius. The arrival of an AWD-e version, we think, will not only increase sales but we predict that before long, the majority of Prius buyers will plunk down the extra grand for the extra high-torque electric motor on the rear axle.

That’s right. The base 2019 Toyota Prius retails for $27,990 while the AWD-e will start at only $28,990!

Now, don’t go off-roading with your new Prius AWD-e, although it would make a great video… Point is that the Prius will run as a FWD vehicle as the system is an on-demand type. Along with this addition, all 2019 Prius receive a facelift and other upgrades. Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive is still at bat and relies on an Atkinson cycle 1.8L 4-cylinder engine, a CVT transmission, batteries and either one or two electric motors.

Fuel consumption is always important when it comes to Prius buyers. Know that the second electric motor only barely causes an increase in fuel: 4.4 L / 100 km for the FWD models vs. 4.7 L / 100 km for the AWD-e models.
