    Sounds like you need to take a road trip and get out of town.

    Impressive!!! I'm up to 3,100 miles so far on this tank. (since March 6)

    +1 on the road trip. We're planning one for October to Ohio. But I don't think I can stretch this tank that far. I like to start trips with a full tank, but might not manage it this time unless I want to go to the gas station to buy a few ounces before we hit the road. :D

    After 3 years and 5 months I have 40,000 miles and I don't go anywhere. 4375 after 1 year is remarkable.

    Hi. My 2013 Prius III got totaled in a storm by a Tree. I am looking at the 2020 Prius Prime because of the incentives but I am hesitant with Cargo space, the battery pack and longevity on bigger battery. Any issues with the lithium battery in cold weather? Can you offer me some advice?
    Thanks

    Cargo space has never been an issue for me, even with a donut spare strapped down in the back. Northerners report noticeable reduced EV range in winter, but nothing that should be of concern. Check out John's Stuff - Toyota Prius and more for some Minnesota winter Prime videos.

    The Prime has about 2cu.ft. less cargo space and 3cu.ft. less passenger volume than your old 2013. Those numbers are counting space to the roof though. Unless you were regularly packing your Prius to the gills, the difference likely won't matter. The Prime's higher floor means some tall things might have to go on their side. Best thing to do is to take a bulky item or luggage you regularly will stick in the back down to a dealer, and see how it fits in a Prime.

    Li-ion has been used in other hybrids and plug-ins for years now. The only note worthy issue has been with Leafs in hot climates, because Nissan went cheap on battery cooling. The prime has a couple of fans, which is a big step up over the Leaf, and draws air from the cabin. If you are getting A/C, that battery is getting it. The big concern with Li-ion in winter is in regards to charging, and the Prime has a battery heater to get the battery above the danger temperature.
