Prius c puts you in control with the ability to rapidly switch driving modes depending on your needs. As well as normal driving, Prius c offers a choice of two further drive modes. These can be accessed by a Drive Mode switch located conveniently near the gear shift.

'ECO' Drive Mode

Switch to ‘ECO’ Drive mode and the car will automatically manage fuel inputs and optimise the air conditioning system for maximum fuel efficiency.

'EV’ Drive Mode

At low speeds, the car can be switched to ‘EV’ mode (Electric Vehicle) for short distances. In this mode, the car runs on the electric motor alone – useful to reduce noise late at night in built up residential areas or to cut emissions when parking in a small garage or an underground car park.
