Toyota Prius in Africa

The worlds most popular hybrid car, Toyota Prius increasing in Africa.

Personally I have driven the latest one and it is an amazing car. As soon as the it starts drives on the petrol until it worms up, it automatically switches to electric almost feels like, turned of the engine completely. You hear nothing but the car still drives really powerfully. The last model has the 73 KW and 4,000 r.p.m. The car drives silently. It is almost unfriendly to old people who would not have a clue when the car is coming.

Also I was shocked when I tried to shift change to Parking. All I had to do is to press the red button where it says “P”.

Because of the a lot of new modes are coming out, the price for the old models are coming down rapidly. Let me give you some examples,

It is now possible to purchase one landed in Mombassa port, Kenya for:

CIF US$8500 2003 model

CIF US$3500 1999 model

For me, it will take a bit to time to get used to drive on the thing.
