    I live in the Midwest so haven't seen a 2020 Prime in person but in looking at listings on Cargurus, it appears to me that the Blue Magnetism color has changed slightly and is very similar to or the same as the new Electric Storm color offered on the regular Prius. Are the online photos deceiving me or are Blue Magnetism and Electric Storm the same color but with different names for the regular hybrid and the prime?

    best to look at the name of the color on toyota's website. if it is the same name, it should look the same. don't trust your computer, see it in person.

    I’m going to buy that color too. I think it’s the photos. In some, it looks blue, in others, teal.

    Kimberly, et. al. What prompted the post was that I looked at two Cargurus postings, one from Georgia, one from Nevada and both looked the same and decidedly more blue than I remembered Blue Magnatism being. I've since wondered if both dealers were using the same type of camera (such as an I phone) which might favor blues and that might account for the similarity and the deeper blue. I'll just have to see one in person if they ever arrive in the Midwest.

    I think it's a difficult color to reproduce on a computer/camera. On the Toyota website it looks more green that it actually is.

    Blue Magnetism is difficult to capture on camera.

    Here’s a couple of shots:p:

    Paint code for Blue Magnetism is 791 and that is different than blue storm;).

    There is a Blue Storm pizza delivery Prius here and I pulled up next to it at a light:).

    I can tell the difference (y).

    To me the color looks like turquoise.
