    Took my 2020 to the drag strip today. Did almost 1 second faster quarter mile than my 2006. Was in Power mode using every combo of drive modes(HV, Auto EV,& EV),traction on & off. HV with traction on was the winner. EV mode was not the slowest run to my suprise. Was a fun night & even beat a Volkswagen. I was car #6 on the time slip. Here's my best time a a few pictures. I'll upload videos soon.

    How did the crowd react/treat you? Did they ask questions about your Prime? or Hybrids in general?

    To clarify, your 2020 Prime does the quarter mile in 17.6 seconds at 78.45 mph. That is interesting. Thanks for letting us know.

    Very cool. :) Been many years since I took a car to the track, pre-Prius, lol. (Was a ‘96 Acura Integra... before I had kids. That was a fun and nimble little car...:rolleyes:)

    I presume this was the best run? How much did it differ in EV vs HV?
    Congrats on winning the race. :cool: Do you remember what you were racing against here? ;)
