What is the difference between the Prius I and the Prius 4?

    The first few Priuses released were not plug-in models. They simply used gasoline to generate electricity which charged a very small battery that ran the motor. Now, Priuses have larger battery packs that can be charged from a home source of electricity rather than from gasoline. This is known as the “all-electric driving range.”

    The funny thing is that people have been converting earlier Prius models to become plug-in cars before Prius released a factory version with the extra batteries already installed. Plus, many people who wanted electric cars in the mid-2000’s just made them from old cars instead of buying a new car.
