The Toyota Prius has never been seen as a vehicle for snowy backroads but the 2019 Prius could make people change their minds. Available with an option for electric all-wheel drive, the 2019 Prius ensures drivers can muster a combined 50MPG without losing its footing on snow-piled roads. This electric AWD system revolves around an independent electric motor that will always power the rear wheels up to 6MPH and can continue up to 43MPH when needed.

The electric AWD versions of the 2019 Prius will be on the higher end of the price scale, but an L Eco model is also offered with affordability in mind. The AWD versions of the 2019 Prius will also utilize a different battery to the regular model.
