Why does the Toyota Prius in Orlando have three driving modes?

When you get behind the wheel of the 2015 Toyota Prius in Orlando, you may notice three buttons that say EV, ECO, and PWR. Each of these modes help you tackle different kinds of driving situations! You can personalize your drive time by using these drive modes, but you have to know how to use them in order to get the most fuel efficiency out of your Orlando Toyota Prius!

  • Driving mode #1-ECO: If you're looking to get incredible fuel-efficiency, this is the mode you need to use for your new Toyota hybrid. If you plan on driving a consistent speed, ECO mode will help you get the most out of your tank of gas. How does this ride do this? It changes the electric throttle program and reduces throttle response to heavy pressure on the gas pedal. This mode also modifies the air conditioning operations, so you use less fuel! If you use the ECO mode properly and drive conservatively, you can reduce your fuel consumption by 10 to 15 percent when you drive your Orlando Toyota Prius!
