The word "innovation" might not be the first thing that comes to mind when describing a farm, but Heyday Farm on Bainbridge Island is not your typical farm. This family-run business is changing the way we view farming with a gorgeous 25-acre historic property, sustainable field-to-table community dinners and culinary events.
Seattle Refined got the chance to check out Heyday Farm, and what better way to visit an innovative, sustainable farm than in an innovative environmentally-friendly hybrid, like the new Toyota Prius Prime?
Bainbridge Island is a quick day trip from Seattle, but some navigation will be necessary and with the Prius Prime's 11.6-inch multimedia display (just like using your phone), you'll make every right turn along the way. And don't worry about finding a gas station on your route; Prius Prime has a gas-free, plug-in EV Mode (charged by a standard household outlet) with an EPA-estimated driving range of up to 25 miles. When the charge runs low, the car will continue to run as an efficient hybrid with an EPA-estimate 54 MPG. That means with a full tank of gas and a fully charged battery, Prius Prime has an EPA estimated driving range of 640 miles! Steering wheel-mounted controls mean you can keep track of real-time driving data and energy use, without taking your hands off the wheel.
Advanced technology features inside the Prius Prime include an available color Head-Up Display (HUD) that projects useful information directly on the windshield in front of the driver so your eyes never leave the road and wireless phone charging. Two additional USB ports in the rear and standard Sirius XM, Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa create a more connected driving experience.
There's plenty of room for your luggage for an overnight stay at the bed & breakfast at Heydey Farm. With new seating for five, ample cargo space and 60/40 split rear seats, there's even enough space to bring home all the farm-fresh goodies you'll want to purchase from Heydey Market.
Safety is always the top priority in any Toyota vehicle, and Prius Prime comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense, a suite of active safety features. Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Full-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and Automatic High Beams are designed to help keep you and your loved ones safe while riding in your Prius Prime.
But all that safety innovation doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style and comfort. A sleek, modern design featuring new black accents on the steering wheel and center console, along with heated front seats and side bolsters to keep you from shifting when the road curves & twists, mean you'll be confident behind the wheel and look good going down the road.
Prius Prime is Toyota's most advanced Prius yet. Incredible fuel efficiency paired with a sleek design means you'll enjoy every minute behind the wheel of this new vehicle.
The starting MSRP for the 2020 Prius Prime is $27,600.
