The Chevrolet Volt might be one of the top EV powered models in the market right now but the Toyota Prius Prime is not going to go down without a fight as well. If you were to pick one of these two, which one will it be?

The Toyota Prius Prime will be coming in with an 8.8kWh battery pack. The battery pack will be paired with a 1.8-liter gasoline engine. The combination will deliver about 121hp. The Prius Prime will be offering about 25miles of range with its electric engine but combine, the Prius Prime will have a driving range of 640miles.

The Chevrolet Volt, on the other hand, will come with an 18.4kWh. The bigger battery will allow it to run for 53miles on electric alone. The battery pack will be paired with a 1.5-liter gasoline engine. The combination will allow the Chevrolet Volt to return about 149hp and 294lb ft of torque.
