2007 Toyota Prius

Demand continues for Toyota's hallmark gas/electric hybrid vehicle. The reasons are quite simple: the Prius is a high-tech, roomy, lavishly equipped and extremely fuel-efficient mid-size car, backed up by Toyota engineering. Its fuel frugalness is thanks to Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive, which combines a 50-kw electric motor, 1.5-litre, 76-hp gas engine and CVT transmission. Able to run independently or as a team, the two power sources can move the car from 0-100 km/h in about 10 seconds.
