Toyota Prius Virtual Drive App Makes You Feel Guilty!

Toyota Prius Virtual Drive at Toyota Prius Virtual Drive App Makes You Feel Guilty!

To put advantages of driving the new Prius Plug-in Hybrid in perspective, Toyota has launched a web application that tells you how much fuel and CO2 you can save on your everyday drive if you do it in a Prius PHEV. You enter your starting point and your destination, and then the app, literally, takes you there via Google Street View in a Plug-in Prius, and tells you the fuel economy, CO2 emissions and the battery level.

It is a good and practical idea to promote the car, and the also pretty clever technology-wise. But all it does – especially if you drive a gas-guzzler – is make you feel guilty and depressed. You’ll be thinking about how much fuel you could save if you had a Prius, and all that CO2…

And then you start thinking sod that, I’d rather drive a fun car and burn fuel than commute in a boring and uncool Japanese box!
