Now more than ever, I’m convinced Father John Misty is a genius. Not just because his own music is great, or because he was in Fleet Foxes, or because he does insane things like cover Ryan Adams’ Taylor Swift covers in the style of the Velvet Underground, but because he just eviscerated the music in every eco-friendly…
Our enemy’s numbers grow... Toyota announced today it has reached the milestone of selling over nine million hybrids as of April 30th, with the most recent million sales in just nine months. The automaker now sells 33 different hybrid models in over 90 countries and regions with goals of reaching 1.5 million hybrid…
No, the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime doesn’t turn into a gigantic, fuel-efficient leader of the Autobots, like I was kind of hoping from the name. But it is Toyota’s most advanced hybrid ever: a plug-in with 22 miles of electric range. The question is, will people buy it?
Following an explosion at one of its affiliate steel production plants, Toyota could have to put a halt on nearly half of its global production in February. If so, that means about 14,000 vehicles per day may not roll off the line.
After considerable thought, I have decided to devote today’s column to cars we hate. This may seem like an unusual diversion from the norm, until you remember that I spent last year writing about a Hummer.
I’m guessing that for many of you, you’re here because you read that headline and you want to scroll down to the comments to call me an idiot. And I’m not going to stop you — there’s plenty of evidence in your corner. But I will ask you to just hear me out, so I can explain what I mean about the 2016 Toyota Prius,…
After selling more than three and a half million of them, for next year, Toyota felt it’s time to go weird with the Prius. And it works!
Yup. That’s it. That’s the new Prius. It has.. a design, and a combined power output with the 1.8L four cylinder and hybrid setup of 150 hp, about a 15 hp bump over the outgoing model. Yes, a car.
Install something expensive in a car and thieves will find a way. At first it was catalytic converters and airbags, now it’s hybrid batteries, with a spate of break-ins reported on both coasts.
Yes, it’s called the Relax Cabin and I didn’t realize I needed a Prius RV in my life until now.
Here's more evidence that any car can be hooned if you're determined enough.
[The now-facelifted Toyota Prius V appears to be angry and confused. About what I do not know.]
Driving a vintage car, even a replica on public roads is always a bit scary. All it takes is one barreling minivan to just go about and ruin everything. So when said minivan barreled into a Toyota Prius, the squidgy hybrid valiantly flipped from its designated path, right before it smashed into a re-created Bugatti…
Since the 1920s, the Nürburgring has been the place where brave men and women have chased incredible speeds and ever-decreasing record lap times. Now we know what a Prius plug-in will do: 20 minutes and 59 seconds.
"I'd rally the shit out of a Toyota Prius if only it had all-wheel drive!" If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, I'd be able to afford dozens of Prii. That's why there's exciting news about this longtime enthusiast favorite: the next one might get all-wheel drive.
Finally, the Toyota Prius has been unseated as the best-selling car in California and a sign that order is being restored. So what gasoline-only car unseated it? The Honda Accord? Still, it's a win.
A Toyota Prius with a V8. The perfect sleeper, the cross between a hipster and a gearhead, is almost too good to be true.
Could you ever take a Toyota Prius with flashing red and blue lights in your rear view mirror seriously? I don't think I could, but the mayor of Seattle thinks the hybrids would be a great option for his city's police department. The cops, unsurprisingly, do not agree.
