    I am a long time hybrid driver (2003 Honda Insight 8years) I recently saw a good deal on a 2017 Prius Two Eco with 11K miles. I downloaded the Dr. Prius app for iPhone and paid the $12.99 for the basic package with 3 vehicles unlimited tests. I then connected with wifi ELM 327 and run the LET Life Expectancy test. The results "Battery pack has estimated 98.50% capacity left, it is in new condition"

    It's a peace of mind to be able to check this most important part when buying a hybrid. I just wanted to share. I hope there was a way to check for free however, I since I plan on keeping it, it's good to have.

    Anyway, I hope I can use this forum to ask questions and help others. looking forward to owning it.

    I've had my 2017 Prius 2 Eco since Sept '17, and I love it. If you drive carefully, and conditions are good, you can get phenomenal mileage. This morning I drove 15 miles to church on back roads, 45-55 mph, and averaged over 70 mpg for the trip.

    I thought its a Two Eco but the Toyota Site says its a Three. It looks like the three models are
    ZVW50
    ZVW51 has the sealed lithium-ion battery.

    How can find which model my car is? here is the VIN JTDKARFU7H3539794

    Well it has a rear wiper so it's not a Two Eco. Those models did not come with a rear wiper.

    It looks like a Three with the no charge Safety Plus package (Intelligent Clearance Sonar, Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Cross Traffic Alert)

    Li-Ion.

    (The other battery is NiMH not Ni-Ion)
