    I have used my car for nearly 2 months now after purchasing it brand new (Prime 2020) and it's the first time my attention is brought to such leak. It seems to be water given that it doesn't smell anything and seem transparent. Here's a video:


    Should I be worried?

    welcome!

    it's probably the a/c condensate

    Thanks!

    But it is normal or something to be worried?

    What do you mean?

    when using a/c, the moisture pulled from the inside of the car is diverted through a drain tube and under the front of the car, creating a puddle when you park. (normal)

    beneath your avatar, your vehicle data says: 2012 prius plug-in. you can change that to prime

    Just like how water in humid bathroom from taking a shower will condense and drip down cool windows/mirrors, the interior moisture is condensed to water and dumped out the bottom. As long as it looks and smells like regular water, its nothing to worry about.
