The Toyota Prius, introduced in 1997, was the first full hybrid vehicle to be mass produced and today is the most-popular alternative-energy vehicle on the market. Since its introduction it has seen many changes, though nothing that would affect vehicle transportation in any way. The 2012 Prius is actually sold in three different base models, the Prius, Prius C and Prius V. Since each Prius model has its own unique models and options, we’ll cover each one individually, starting with the basic Prius. This vehicle transportation article will discuss which current models and options are available for the basic Prius as well as what you will encounter while searching for vehicle transportation quotes to move your own.
The Prius currently comes in four different models, the Prius Two, Prius Three, Prius Four and Prius Five. The Prius Two features a Hybrid Synergy Drive with EV/ECO/POWER modes, a Touch Tracer Display, a Smart Key System, LED daytime-running lights with an on/off feature and Display Audio with a 6.1-inch touchscreen AM/FM CD player, USB ports, and Bluetooth compatibility. The Prius Three features a Display Audio System with navigation and integrated backup camera, a smart-key system and an available solar roof package. The Prius Four features SofTex-trimmed seats and steering wheel, an eight-way powered drivers seat with power lumbar support, a JBL-powered sound system with an amplifier, an available deluxe solar roof package, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and projector-beam halogen headlamps with an auto on/off feature. The Prius Five features 17.5-inch spoke alloy wheels, LED headlamps with auto level control, headlight cleaners and an auto on/off feature, integrated fog lamps, and an available advanced technology package.
When it comes to shipping your Toyota Prius you really don’t have to worry about the size or weight of it, as it’s a standard sedan-sized car. Vehicle transportation companies will charge higher prices for heavier or larger vehicles, as they cost more for carriers to physically transport. Since you don’t have to worry about this, your biggest factors when it comes to your vehicle transportation quotes will be the pickup and delivery cities that you are shipping from and to. Most vehicle transportation companies like to travel along popular interstate highways that connect various major metropolitan areas, and they usually charge more for out-of-the-way shipments that take them off their main routes of travel. If you’re shipping to or from somewhere off the beaten path, but you’re shipping on a budget, moving your vehicle to a more vehicle transportation-friendly city might not be a bad idea. It’s always best to speak to your vehicle transportation representative about it, however, as they may have other solutions that can help as well.
