World’s first Toyota Prius Limo – shirley shome mishtake…?

Priuslimosine

The world’s first Toyota Prius Limo. Canadian with way too much time on his hands decides to accommodate his family of six in green style. Six doors, 10 seats, 50 mpg and a bunch of turning heads at the mall. Er..do not try this at home folks. More here.

 The price was small. The cost was high. We have less than $10,000.00 in it. All the parts came from two cars with non rebuild able junk titles. I was able to recoup a portion of that by selling and using the leftovers. The drive train had only three thousand miles on it. However, the bigger consideration was the time involved. It took seven weekends and more than 200 hours of my time. Over all, I am very pleased with the outcome none the less. The MPG is reduced by the increased weight. We get 43 around town and 50 on long trips. You may have seen how we load the car to it’s new capacity at times. When I am alone, I have gotten as high as 56 mpg. It is interesting that the highway mileage is affected the least by the modification. One positive is the shape. The longer body style results in a lower coefficient of drag than the original hump shape in the short version.
