Many times, automakers will face lawsuits about false fuel economy claims, but Toyota isn’t one of them. The Toyota Prius in Tacoma is not a model that has to claim anything other than its truly spectacular mileage rating. Depending on which Prius model one was to drive, the fuel ratings range from the lowest of 44 MPG on the Prius v, to 98 MPGe on the Prius Plug-In Hybrid.
To showcase the Prius’ superior fuel economy, Toyota has organized the ‘2013 Prius Plug-in Challenge, with local charitable organizations as participants. These organizations will be loaned a Prius Plug-in for 30 days, driving more than 500 miles within that time. At the end of the 30 days, the team that achieves the best overall fuel economy will win $2,500 donation toward their charity. Second place will win $1,000 and third will receive $500.
This is an excellent way for Prius to show how useful and fuel-efficient the Prius can be, while doing some good for local charities.
