Prius PHV - Hill Climb & Hard Acceleration
Back in August 2010, I had some opportunities to get behind the wheel of a PHV model (plug-in) Prius. Little did I know my few random bits of video footage would be referred back to later on like this. Had I known, lots more would have been filmed. Oh well. In this, you can see how I effortlessly climbed up the residential hill using only electricity. Then after getting out of the neighborhood, I dropped the pedal all the way to the floor to see what the system would do when hard acceleration was needed. The gas engine joined to help, then shut off when going down the hill afterward. I later discovered climbing from a dead stop to 40 MPH up that same hill could be done with only electricity; just don't drop the pedal like I did in this clip.
