    • Prius is good. Quiet. But only downside is small. For normal size TD can but for big size like me a bit small. Other then that my preference is Renault and Mercs

      It is around 32km/litre. So if you drive 320km, and if fuel price is per litre $2, it work out to be $20 only, with further discount, it can be only $18. However, we also need to take into the consideration of the car age and it battery condition, older car will definitely takes more petrol, just like diesel taxis, i40 and sonata will also take more diesel as it ages. Typically speaking with diesel now at 80 cents, an average i40 travelled 320km, would also need abt $20 to top it up. So, take yr pick.

    • No lah, 1.6 pirus new hve that capability to achieve 32km/l on city, because pirus in city use less petrol, but more on battery, but if you are talking about 1.8cc, that will be lowered to about 22 to 25km/l.

      However, Pirus is only got 122hp…bo lat

    • No, pirus work on 2 trains of drive for power, battery and petrol engine complimenting each others.

      When on City/town, whereby there are lots of stoppage, battery will takes over the power to drive the car.

      When on highway/expressway, whereby traffic is smooth, the petrol engine will take over and at the same time, charge the battery, there is not a need to have charging point for the battery, the engine will act as the charger.

      Battery lifespan can last for more than 10 years, Toyota guarantee battery for 10 years.

      However, as you drive along, after few years, the battery get weaker, so the petrol consumption will go up.

    • Pirus is quite, the only problem is their rear boot is small, and inside also small, not as powerful as diesel taxis, on the other hand, when any sign of failure in pirus, it completely cannot move or dangerous to drive, unlike diesel engine cab…sometimes a few lights like engine light or abs light appear, still can drive.
