My new car – Toyota Prius

One of the coolest tech toys on the planet. The Hybrid Synergy Drive equipped Toyota Prius – half petrol – half electric powered – uses a combination of batteries, electrical motor/generator, and regenerative braking to drastically reduce fuel consumption in a full sized and fully equipped saloon car. My new car looks just like this. It appeals to the geek in me – driving utterly silently in electric-only mode at 130 km/h quietly enough that I can hear the power steering going round corners or just gliding silently round a car park. All this, 0-100km/h in 10.9 seconds and the fuel economy is better than most 1.0 litre small cars. I have never had so much fun being green and saving money 🙂
