Two great news came out today! First news is that the Prius c will be here in San Francisco Toyota’s showroom in March, which is a month away. Second, is that the all new Prius C is not only affordable, but after five years it won’t cost you more to own it .
“We do an apples-to-apples comparison when it comes to affordability, and all the cars we picked this time out must be equipped with an automatic transmission, power windows and locks, remote entry, USB input, Bluetooth connectivity and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel.
Those features come standard on the Prius c, but most of its competitors in this affordability story were forced to add significantly to the sticker price for just the automatic transmission.
[...] we assume gas prices are at $3.44 a gallon and a driving range of 15,000 miles a year with 45% city driving and 55% highway driving. The Prius c gets substantially better city mileage — 53 mpg — than its 46 mpg highway, so where you drive will alter the equation, as well.
The Prius c delivers a similar driving experience with a comparable level of space and refinement to its compact-class competitors, but after five years it won’t cost you more to own it. Taking the price premium of a hybrid out of the ownership equation should be a big win for the Prius c.”
