Telling


Autoevolution is one of those sites I don't link to because they're link-baity as hell. But I do think this story lead in is so indicative of the type of press Toyota has garnered with the 4G Prius it's worth mentioning.
In theory, the 2016 Prius with its basic Nickel battery pack is a crude, old-fashioned car dressed like a clown. But this real-world test will prove that Toyota is still the king of being green.
And the test does indeed go on to prove that. But wow, that lead in. And it's not even totally unfair even though it's wildly inflammatory and just rude.
