Love it or hate it, the Prius is here to stay and while the next-generation's design is as polarizing as it has ever been, its gas-saving hybrid technology continues to make it one of the most popular cars in the Toyota lineup. This year, they're unveiling a top-of-the-line model called the Prius Prime and they're hoping to swing potential buyers with a whole host of upgraded technology and their first dual-motor drive system. 

The Prime features a plug-in hybrid system that can run on electricity for up to 22 miles on a full charge and when combined with the gas engine, you'll get a very impressive 600 miles of range. They've also upgrade the tech in a big way with a massive 11.6" central display, an array of safety technologies such as Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection and Automatic Braking, and LED lighting on the front and rear of the car. The Prius Prime will hit showrooms this fall and pricing has yet to be finalized.
