In an earlier post, I described how I tested the waters driving rideshare by renting a Prius through Hyrecar, a peer-to-peer rental company specializing in rideshare. The economics of that don’t work at all, so I decided to go all-in and get myself a Prius for continued madcap adventures with strangers. I estimate…
I meant to post this before, but this was the two work days of driving I had this past week. (The other two days in there are from a new year’s road trip.)
Another post that should go on LaLD, but I don’t actually go on there, much less have authorship.
Engine RPM, water temperature, a far more accurate display of battery state of charge, and high voltage battery current flow - I’d say that’s a pretty decent config.
I finally own what my Prius wants to be when it grows up.
In case of Kinja, 5759 RAV4 Hybrids sold in the past month, a 34.2% increase over last year, while 5722 Prii (the regular one, not the v, c, or Prime plug-in) sold, a 43.8% decrease from last year.
That’s what these Prius Primes look like to me
That was done without impeding traffic, too - I’m not about to be that guy.
...you’re gonna see the horsepower peak.
No cheating, guess, don’t Google.
Guess it’s time to join the bandwagon.
Also, fuck 2017.
Am I doing this right?
So, the first snow that’s actually stuck happened overnight, nothing’s been plowed, perfect for seeing what a car can do. The Miata’s parked for the winter, so that leaves the Prius.
October 13 was about half freeway, and the 14th and today were about 75% freeway, too.
This week’s AAH revolves around the Prius Prime, but it has a ton of good stuff on the benefits of 48 volt systems— and mild hybrids have been a talk on Oppo recently. The Prius Prime is a full hybrid but still has the 48 volt system.
Ok, so it’s a test / clever ploy to get some extra brainpower.
