2022 Toyota Prius Joins the Dark Side

October 20th, 2021 by

The new 2022 Toyota Prius is the first all-hybrid Toyota to get the all-black Nightshade Edition. Interestingly, you can choose from three exterior colors, including Super White and Silver Metallic – for those who prefer just a hint of darkness. The new Prius Nightshade Edition builds on the Prius XLE model with the choice of standard FWD or AWD-e. New for the 2022 model year, all Prius models now have a Rear Seat Reminder and offer a 10-year Toyota Service Connect trial plus a one-year Toyota Safety Connect® trial.

2022 Toyota Prius Nightshade Edition

Since 1997, the first-ever mass-market hybrid vehicle has sold more than 6 million units. In 2022, the Prius becomes the first dedicated Toyota hybrid to add the high-style Nightshade Edition featuring all-black exterior accents, including black mirror caps, door handles, headlight components, wheels and badging. The 2022 Prius Nightshade Edition with AWD-e gets 17-inch alloy wheels, and the FWD version has 15-inch wheels, both with black lug nuts.

Inside, the new Prius Nightshade has SofTex® (faux leather) trimmed seats, steering wheel, door armrests and seatback pockets. Like the Prius XLE, the Nightshade Edition features power-adjustable heated front seats, 3-door Smart Key Entry, Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto™ and Qi wireless charger. The Prius Nightshade Edition also features:

  • Chrome interior accents
  • Semi-gloss black center console
  • 60/40 split fold-down rear seats
  • Rear center armrest
  • Tonneau cargo area cover
  • Heated steering wheel

Upgrade to the 2022 Toyota Prius Limited to get top-tier features, including:

  • 11.6-inch multimedia touchscreen
  • Color Head-Up Display
  • Adaptive Front Lighting System
  • Fog lights with LED accent lights
  • 10-Speaker Premium JBL audio system

Every new 2022 Toyota Prius has a 7-inch touchscreen, smart-flow climate control with pollen filtration, Hill Start Assist Control and Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0, which includes:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
  • Road Sign Assist

The 2022 Prius Nightshade Edition adds Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.

The new Nightshade Edition Prius gets up to 54 mpg with FWD or 51 mpg with AWD-e*. To maximize your fuel economy, opt for the 2022 Toyota Prius L Eco and get up to 58 mpg*!

The Toyota Prius hybrid has received subtle design updates over the years but still uses aerodynamics to reduce drag and increase efficiency. Its liftback design also allows for maximum cargo space – an impressive 50.7 cubic feet with the 60/40 split seats folded down in FWD models.
