Diff in trim from P3 to P4 primarily is the 11.6 inch screen in the P4, which is SO MUCH BETTER.
Would Buy Ranked 2018 Toyota Prius Three worse.
"Best car on the market... what other car out there gives you comfort, safety, the latest technology, and all the bells and whistles of any luxury car out there, WITH 65-75 AVE. MPG AND A FLAWLESS RELIABILITY RECORD?"

I owned the Chevy Volt . Drove it 6700 miles, loved the power and styling. Did not like manual adjust seats.
Front Seats Ranked 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid FWD better.
"The driver seat is 8 way power, it has a memory and readjusts for that driver. The passenger seat is also power adjust. Both seats are wide and comfortable."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid FWD better.
"Trunk is deeper and also wider than the Volt. Easy to show, as I transferred my fitted cargo mat from my old Volt to the new 2018 Clarity PHEV. The fitted mat don’t cover the larger floor space."
