    Did you bring your Prime to Europe with you?
    The European Prius PHV2 max HV speed is 162 km/h as far as I remember.

    It's worth noting that I've calculated an approximate top speed of 99-100 MPH based on the gearing data that Toyota provided the US EPA, for US-spec Primes...

    104 mph in the Prius PHV.

    I did that a few weeks ago, a final woohoo before getting the Prime.

    It's governed, so we really don't know the true top speed, nor does it matter. Most people won't have tires rated for that speed nor a safe place to drive.

    Well, you have governed for safety, and you have governed for RPM reasons. The top speed on a Prime is limited by MG2 RPM.
