    Default A question for Prius owners

    Dear Prius owners, I have a question for you all.

    How does the AC works in a Prius? Does the car shifts to petrol once the AC is turned on?

    The AC works even when the car is on battery (meaning,the car is started {ignited}), depending on the charge of battery.
    If the battery is fully charged and the prius is standing still or on lower speed, the car would be operating on battery and AC would be working fine.
    The engine starts either when you press the accelerator harder or battery is low.

    @Veee! thank you...so you mean to say that the batteries can run AC compressor if those are fully charged.

    I am asking this because someone told me that the car switches to petrol as soon as the ac is turned on.
