    no... one engine and one electronic motor with life of 100,000km.
    people who use Highbeams.. once day would suffer too bigtime. People who drive slow on fast lanes, remember one day a vehicle carryin ur son, dad might get late to hospital coz people like u. underaged driving will land u in bigtime trouble one day or the other.. And the Blue indication light on ur speedometer denotes "High Beams"

    and the electric only works when the car is at low a low rpm..if u step on the gas it changes to petrol..but the conversion is so smooth that unless u look into the monitor there is no way u can tell..

    i thought the motors work on smooth rpm at any speed... high/low... they get charged from the rotation of tires....

    goto jappy local site of toyota and try to find out there... toyota.jp

    you could be right, what i found out was that when i stepped on the gas..there was like 1 second lag and then i saw the conversion to petrol on the in-dash display, but when u let go of the throttle and just cruise along it switches to the electric motor..and when you reach 180km/hr it automatically shifts to the electric motor and cuts off the rpm !

    Yes, in a way, there are two different type of engines are used i.e. seamless integration of gas engine and an emissions-free electric motor so that it could achieve fuel economy. But technically, it has only 1.5L VVTi engine and other one is not engine but electric motor.

    Well, isn't a "engine" essentially a "motor" that just rotates the crank shaft? Whether this "motor" is run off petrol or electricity, it doesn't really matter.

    in crude terms anything used to generate power / propel a locomotive can be reffered as engine.. in this case the prius has two..

    1. Internal Combustion
    2. Electrical Motor
