Prius talk with Jesse who has put 865k MILES (that’s more than 1.3 MILLION kms) on the clock of four Priuses

ReInverted - EV and Hybrid Experiences

In today’s episode, I will have a long discussion with Jesse who is not only a huge fan of hybrid and electric cars but the President of the New England Electric Auto Association. Jesse has been driving Priuses since 2004. Since then, he has put 865k miles (that’s more than 1.3 million kms) on the clock of four Priuses, out of which he still owns two. Jesse talks about his experience with the Prius and what killed his first two cars. We talk about reliability, comparison of the generations and of course, cover the Taycan vs. Model S debate for some extent. This is going to be a long one! The New England Electric Auto Association (www.neeaa.org) has been around for over 50 years. They hold monthly meetings throughout New England to promote the adoption of EVs through education and advocacy.
