2013 Toyota Prius C (AQUA)

Critics said the 2012 Toyota Prius c isn’t especially fast or thrilling to drive, but is a solid choice if you’re after a safe and incredibly fuel-efficient small car.

The 2012 Toyota Prius c achieves a superb EPA fuel economy rating of 53/46 mpg city/highway. However, beyond that, reviewers found little to love about the Prius c’s four-cylinder gas engine and electric motor, which are paired with a continuously variable transmission. Several reviewers noted very slow acceleration, and one mentioned that it is difficult to maintain speed going up steep hills. Still, others said the Prius c has adequate power for city and freeway driving. Some critics wrote that the Prius c handles adequately, and noted that the C4 model has a quicker steering ratio, which makes the Prius c a bit more entertaining to drive. One reviewer also said the regenerative brakes don’t feel as spongy as those found on other hybrids. The Prius c has an excellent safety score and a good reliability score.

The Prius c’s cabin received mixed marks from reviewers. One noted that some of the materials aren’t as high-quality as those found in other small cars, while others focused on the design, which was generally well-received for its modern look. Auto journalists found the front seats comfortable and supportive. One critic said the back seat is a little short on space, but others noted that it offers plenty of space for adults. The Prius c comes standard with Bluetooth, a four-speaker stereo and a USB port. Available features include Toyota’s Display Audio system with navigation, which features HD and satellite radio, as well as Bing and Pandora integration through smartphone connectivity. Reviewers liked the Prius c’s dashboard display screen and menus for their simplicity and ease of use. The Prius c has 17.1 cubic feet of cargo space, which is slightly less than the cargo space in similarly-sized hatchbacks like the Honda Fit.

eDrive - An Electrifying Driving Experience.

A thousand electric cars, test-driven on three continents, enabled BMW i to perfect its innovative electric drive technology.

Once you've driven a car like this, you'll never want to go back to a typical petrol car." That was the verdict of Todd Crook from California, one of a thousand MINI E or BMW ActiveE test drivers from across the world who put e-mobility to the practical test in their everyday lives, driving to and from work and in their free time.

Todd Crook is certainly not an eco-minded Californian solely motivated by environmental arguments. Instead, his enthusiasm for e-mobility has been triggered by an electrifying driving experience. The most marked difference between his electric car and a conventionally powered car was not just its extremely agile handling but also its uninterrupted acceleration from a standing start.

BMW's innovative eDrive technology is the result of years of research and tests – and its three key components deliver a uniquely exhilarating driving experience. The entire torque of the extremely agile electric motor is available from a standing start and uninterrupted acceleration is maintained up to the maximum speed, making the car a delight to drive. The innovative battery technology is based on ultra-powerful lithium-ion cells with an integrated liquid cooling system that ensures the ideal operating temperature and boosts the battery's performance and lifetime. Third, the combination of an intelligent engine management system and regenerative braking extends the car's range and enhances its performance.

Whether you choose to drive more dynamically or more efficiently, BMW eDrive gives you one key advantage on urban roads: zero local emissions.*

*Emissions may still be created in the production of electricity.

The Future of Urban Mobilty.

Spring 2008. A top-secret location somewhere in Munich, Germany. BMW’s most innovative thinkers. And one ambitious goal: the radical reinvention of individual mobility in megacities.

At the end of 2008, for the first time in human history, more people were living in urban communities than in rural areas. In Bangkok, a city of seven million people, rush-hour traffic on the roads of the Thai capital now moves at an average speed of less than 10 mph. In Los Angeles, the American dream city of individual mobility has turned into a two-hour crawl to and from work every day. In central London, a congestion charge is levied on all motor vehicles travelling in the area on weekdays between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Clearly the solution to the challenge of urban mobility in tomorrow’s world must be more than yet another new car.

The response of BMW i to these challenges was to set up an innovative project with all the power of a start-up and the resources of a global corporation. A think tank called project i was commissioned to think out of the box and develop innovative, unconventional ideas. The team travelled around the world twice, visiting megacities, interviewing dozens of urban planners and architects, and talking to residents. “We lived with people in these conurbations and observed their daily lives”, recalls project leader Ulrich Kranz.

In just nine months, BMW’s most innovative thinkers came up with an approach that has radically reinvented the automotive industry. A strategy that thinks in new car concepts, alternative drive train technologies, new materials and intelligent mobility services. A program that covers every stage in the automotive lifecycle, from design and production to a vehicle’s many years on the road and its ultimate recycling. The name of this program: BMW i.

In 2011, the launch of the BMW i Concept marked the dawn of a new era in terms of urban mobility. Because BMW i is going to change the way we move through urban areas all over the world.
