    Well, he is dead wrong on the assessment of the traction battery charging using the engine. See from 9:50. He says, he visited Prius Chat to find out but he said "There is no way to charge the high voltage battery from the car using ICE." He surely did not read the manual and learn about the CHARGE mode. LOL

    That being said, his assessment of the nav and infotainment system on PRIME is pretty accurate. I have to agree with him on the opinion that the base model LE without nav and large screen is the best choice.

    Yeah. Hopefully someone will let him know about CHG mode.

    31 miles is pretty good for an average person.
