Hurricane Sandy recently swept through the Northeast, leaving millions without power for weeks. However, one inventive New Jersey resident utilized a new power source – the 2013 Toyota Prius! Believe it or not, this resourceful man used an inverter and an extension cord to pull enough power for a laptop, a few lights, and even a television – for an entire week and all for less than a full tank of gas! However, Toyota of Orlando wants to add a disclaimer here – you have to be extremely careful about car exhaust fumes, which can be toxic. You should definitely do you research before trying to utilize your 2013 Toyota Prius as a power source!
2013 Toyota Prius uses innovative technology
The 2013 Toyota Prius in Orlando utilizes Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive System. This means it has an electric motor, a gasoline engine, and a hybrid battery, all of which power the car in turn. The gasoline engine is used for power when the new Toyota Prius is traveling at high speeds or for long distances, while the electric motor comes into play at slower speeds, like when you’re pulling out of a parking lot or sitting in traffic. The hybrid battery stores energy accordingly, and this is how the resourceful NJ man powered his home!
However, innovation is present in all aspects of the 2013 Toyota Prius in Orlando – not just the hybrid technology. The exterior design is also tailored to efficiency. It has a sleek and aerodynamic design which decreases wind resistance, including a high central apex (which also means more interior head room, which will make your taller passengers happy). Additionally, the bumpers of the 2013 Toyota Prius – both front and rear – are also designed to cut down on wind resistance. Less wind resistance means you’ll get much greater fuel efficiency, as noted by the 51 mpg in the city and 48 mpg on the highway you’ll get to enjoy! The new Toyota Prius in Orlando even utilizes LED Daytime Running Lights, which use less energy!

The 2013 Toyota Prius in Orlando also offers exceptional technology on its interior.

The Toyota Prius also offers an automatic climate control system and a Touch Tracer Display, as well as options like Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and the Smart Key System, which allows you to start your car with the simple push of a button!
