    @addikted My Prius give me 26 to 28 K/L with A/c in Lahore, when i bought that was 171000 Km driven in Japan.Good Millage depends on your driving behavior if you pin up the prius you cant take good Millage. i think there are some thing you have to care and you will get good millage.
    1- Avoid to quick exaltation,make your foot easy on exaltation and press slowly.
    2- Avoid for harsh / Immediately barking,Give the time to brake for extra battery charging.

    @addikted at the Comfort and Acceleration level you can beat the Honda Civic reborn 1800 cc.Only Prius shape is not sporty you can get acceleration also like a sport car. Only one part of prius is caring, when you are passing on speed barkers you should very careful otherwise your car will hit to mostly speed barkers which is not construct properly. if you are passing on proper constructed speed barkers then you have no worry.

    3rd generation prius started in 2009 in Japan....heres the article from wiki
    Third generation (XW30; 2009–present)Main article: Toyota Prius (XW30)
    Toyota Prius fan club - 280px 2010 2011 Toyota Prius    12 21 2011
    Production March 2009–present
    Model years 2010–present
    Assembly Tsutsumi, Japan (Toyota City)[44]
    Chachoengsao, Thailand (December 2010-present)
    Changchun, Jilin, China
    Class Mid-size car
    Body style 5-door liftback
    Toyota debuted the new Prius (2010 US model year) at the January 2009 North American International Auto Show,[45] and sales began in Japan on May 18, 2009.[46] Toyota cut the price of the Prius from ?2.331 million to ?2.05 million to better compete with the Honda Insight,[47] leading some to wonder whether increased sales of the Prius might come at the expense of sales of other vehicles with higher margins. Competition from lower priced hybrids, such as the Honda Insight, also made it difficult for Toyota to capitalize on the Prius's success.[48] Its new body design is more aerodynamic, with the coefficient of drag reduced to Cd=0.25. This figure is disputed by General Motors which found the value for the model with 17" wheels to be around 0.30 based on tests in GM, Ford, and Chrysler wind tunnels.[49] An underbody rear fin helps stabilize the vehicle at higher speeds
    The estimated fuel-efficiency rating, using the U.S. EPA combined cycle, is 50 mpg<small>-US</small> (4.7 L/100 km; 60 mpg<small>-imp</small>).[50] The Prius was the most efficient car powered by liquid fuel available in the U.S. in 2009, based on the official rating.[51] Only the first-generation Honda Insight (2000–2006) equipped with a manual transmission attained a lower fuel consumption rate. The official UK fuel efficiency data for the Prius T3 is Urban 72.4 mpg<small>-imp</small> (3.90 L/100 km; 60.3 mpg<small>-US</small>), Extra Urban 76.4 mpg<small>-imp</small> (3.70 L/100 km; 63.6 mpg<small>-US</small>), Combined 72.4 mpg<small>-imp</small> (3.90 L/100 km; 60.3 mpg<small>-US</small>).[52]
    The 1.8-liter gasoline engine (previously 1.5 liters) generates 98 hp, and with the added power of the electric motor generates a total of 134 hp (previously 110 hp). The larger engine displacement allows for increased torque, reducing engine speeds (RPM), which improves fuel economy at highway speeds. Thanks to its electric water pump, the Prius engine is the first consumer automotive production engine that requires no accessory belts, which also further improves its fuel economy.[53] The electric motors and other components of the hybrid powertrain are also smaller and more efficient than the industry average.[54]

    Guys I,ve done some research and calculations on prius.
    Right now I,ve 1998 civic, wanted to change the car. People say prius is very economical, I did some calculations, to see how much do I save if I buy a prius.
    To compare the economy of prius with my car, I drove my car with very light foot and kept RPM below 2, and drove arround 300Km routine driving. It gave me 13km/L petrol consumption.
    Toyota company claims that prius 2006-2008 gives 5L/100Km of fuel, i.e, 20Km/L
    I bought my car in 2005 for arround 7lack, After driving my car 100000Km in 7 years, I used 7692L of petrol.
    If I drive prius 100000Km in 7 years, it will use 5000L of petrol.
    I will save 2692L of fuel in 7 years. Now a days price is Rs106/L, suppose it will increase to Rs115/L, I will save Rs3,09580 worth fuel in 7 years.
    These cars are used cars, and most of the times they reverse the meter readings, you have to change battery after an year or so, so subtracting the price of batteries i.e, Rs1,50000. You are left with Rs1,59000 of saving.
    Now talking about the resale. After 7 years, my honda civic 1998 will be sold arround 8 lac, giving me 1 lac profit, and considering the price you loose after selling prius, plus the headache you'll be having in keeping prius in Pakistan( spare parts, mechanics and technical assistance not available).
    In my understanding, actually you are loosing alot instaed of saving.

    Salam.Who said Prius will need a battery change.In past 10 years there have been no batteries changed in Prius except for accidents.250000 mile cars are still doing their best .2002 model cars in america are still running on same batteries .Prius battery is designed to last for whole car life.Thats one of the reason why Prius is the best hybrid car in the world.More and more people are buying Prius in PK.There used to be 1 or 2 prius on sunday class ads but now 8 to 10 Prius are being offered so resale and maintenance will be talk of the past.Government has givn tax exemptions on hybrid car.Hybrid cars specially Prius has a good future in PK.

    FUEL ECONOMY FOR US (Just to give you an idea)

    YEAR/MODEL CITY (UNIT: KM /L) HIGHWAY(UNIT: KM/L)
    2004-9 2ND GEN PRIUS(1.5) 20.40 19.13
    2010-12 3RD GEN PRIUS (1.5) 21.68 20.40
    2012 PRIUS C (1.5) 22.53 19.55
    2012 PRIUS V (1.8) 18.7 17.0


    FUEL ECONOMY FOR JAPAN

    YEAR/MODEL CITY (UNIT: KM /L) HIGHWAY(UNIT: KM/L)
    2004-9 2ND GEN PRIUS(1.5) 35.5 29.6
    2010-12 3RD GEN PRIUS (1.5) 38 32.6
    PRIUS ALPHA(V)(1.8) 31 26.2
    2012 PRIUS AQUA (C )(1.5) 40 35.4

    Here's what I have observed in 3 days Prius experiment.

    Fuel avg. within city (low speeds 15km and high speed 60km/h) - 19.3km/ltr.
    Fuel avg. on highway (speeds 70 to 85km/h) - consumption at 31 to 35km/ltr.

    above avg. is from a 2007 Japanese model without changing the engine oil, oil filter and air filters. Will post new avg. after changing these filters etc.


    Is it possible to know how many Prius drivers are at Pakwheels? Or how many people own a prius hybrid?

    Prius is designed as fuel efficient vehicle. Avoid quick acceleration to get maximum fuel economy. Just follow the traffic flow and you are good to go.

    Salam @mfh5
    How much do you travel daily? This will decide if you should go fro Prius .If you travel less than 20 km daily then Prius is not for you it will not give its optimal fuel efficiency.After 20km the Prius will be good in fuel consumption.
    Read the earlier posts for battery.Mechanics of Prius might give you a headache.

    most of the prius on shorter route give better mileage due to stop n go...this save ur fuel consumption n run on battery power.....on long route most hybrid drink more fuel due to battery is bout to finish it take time to recharge.....my in-law is using 2007 2nd gen prius for last 6 months.....wenver they drive within 5-6 km it does 19-22km/l......15-25km drive non stop does 16-20km/l depend on battery power.....heres the fuel consumption table
