2004 Toyota Prius

2004 was an impressive year for the Toyota Prius. It won Motor Trend's Car of the Year, was one of "Car and Driver's" Ten Best, was the North American Car of the Year, and International Car of the Year. Luckily, Toyota was more than ready for any increased demand, as they switched to a faster production model, outputting a Prius every minute instead every 8-10 minutes.

The battery pack for the 2004 Prius is guaranteed to last 8 years, although Toyota has said they expect it to last at least 15. Available as a 4-door sedan or 5-door hatchback, the battery has a range of 201-288 volts, and capacity watt hours ranging from 1310-1728. The gas engine maxes out at 4000-5000 rpm.

And the best part? Gas mileage is 60 city/51 highway.
