    In case anyone ever wanted to know what the RPM was in their Prime, I decided to hook up an engine diagnostic tool and film what the max RPM in each drive mode was, both driving down the road and in park. I believe in park the ICE is only charging the battery and getting the battery to proper temperature, but correct me if I'm wrong.

    Turns out, the max RPM is the same for all drive modes, unlike some sports cars out there.

    My Energi allows for a custom display of which RPM and a coolant gauge are some of the selectable options.

    I use a Scangauge II in the Prius for seeing RPM and temps.

    That plot about sums up my video, thanks for letting me know. I wasn't aware they published that before filming. The chart doesn't show RPM though, so hopefully my video still has some merit. It was a fun opportunity to test my new scan tool.
