In addition to drawing more power from less fuel, the Prius c helps change your driving habits for the better. Read on for more information on the 2017 Prius c Hatchback’s mpg ratings and fuel-saving technology!

Smart Hybrid Powertrain

The 2017 Prius c Hatchback is powered by a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine, electric motor, and battery—a combination known as Hybrid Synergy Drive. Every Prius c also comes equipped with an ECVT, and produces a combined 99 hp and 82 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to its eco-friendly powertrain, the 2017 Prius c achieves a remarkable 48 mpg city/43 mpg highway score*, and is rated as a Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV). What’s more, two modes—EV and ECO—allow you to run on electric-only power and maximize fuel economy by reducing power to the climate control system and adjusting throttle response.

Greater Efficiency via Eco Monitoring

To supplement its incredible efficiency, the new Prius c Hatchback includes a handful of systems designed to track fuel usage, allowing you to make reductions wherever possible. Fuel economy readings, EV mileage range, and other helpful updates are displayed via a color screen in your line of sight. The following features are included as standard equipment:

  • Energy Monitor: The energy monitor lets you check up on your Prius c Hatch’s hybrid powertrain to ensure it’s operating at peak efficiency.
  • ECO Savings: With ECO Savings, you can compare the fuel costs and mpg ratings of other vehicles to the Prius c, letting you see just how much you’re saving.
  • ECO Score Display: The ECO Score scores your starting, cruising, and stopping fuel-efficiency out of 100, so you can make improvements as needed.
