Are hybrid cars worth it? I've been living with a Ford Fusion Energi for the past 3 years and break down the numbers, and compare it to other cars like the Chevy Bolt, Nissan Leaf, and Toyota Prius. And with the Tesla Model 3 on the horizon (I'm picking one up this week), are hybrids worth it anymore vs gas cars or electric cars? -------------------- Gear I use: Sony A6500 https://amzn.to/2NhjU6I ANDYCINE A6 5.7Inch 1920x1080 IPS DSLR HDMI Field Video Monitor https://amzn.to/2NhkYre Sony SEL1670Z Vario-Tessar T E 16-70mm F4 ZA OSS https://amzn.to/2NUMR9s Rode RodeLink FM Wireless Filmmaker System https://amzn.to/2upSuV9 Rode VideoMicro Compact On-Camera Microphone https://amzn.to/2NhPLEb YONGNUO YN600 Air LED Camera Video Light https://amzn.to/2uBYb1w ESDDI LED Video Light https://amzn.to/2uBXntr -------------------- Audio file(s) provided by Epidemic Sound http://www.epidemicsound.com/

Tough as it may be to believe, the first Toyota Prius came out 20 years ago. Since then "Prius" has become synonymous with “hybrid” in America – I can’t go two minutes without seeing a Prius in my native Boston. But personally, hybrid cars don’t really get my motor running. If I can’t be behind the wheel of a true electric vehicle, then I want to be driving a “plug-in hybrid” that lets me drive pure electric at least some of the time. Fortunately for me, the Toyota Prius Prime 2017 is just such a car ... and I spent two weeks getting to know it. Join me for MrMobile's Toyota Prius Prime Review!
