The Toyota Prius is capable of a fuel consumption that is comparable to some smaller diesel powered vehicles. Production of CO2 and NOX are also radically low, while particulate emissions are non-existent.

The fuel consumption of the Prius beats every petrol engined 'B'-segment car on the market by a large margin. To top this, the Prius, a 'D' segment car, can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than 11 seconds.

The Prius largely surpasses EURO IV emission targets. Hydrocarbons and emissions are 88,8% lower than required by EURO IV regulations for petrol engines and 93% below diesel-specific EURO IV regulations for these emissions.

Just 0,02 g/km of HC and NOX emissions are produced by the Prius compared to a EURO IV petrol maximum allowable of 0,18 and a EURO IV diesel maximum of 0,30 (combined cycle).

The Prius is by far the cleanest production car on the planet. Toyota's commitment to responsible manufacturing is maintained throughout the life cycle of the vehicle and beyond. From the materials used in production, through driving, maintenance, and finally disposal, the Prius has reduced CO2 emissions by an astonishing 35%. The Prius has a recycleability potential of approximately 90%.
