Q: How does the electric motor in the Toyota Prius work? Do you have to plug it in at night or make sure to drive it only on sunny days?
A: No. The electric motor in the Prius is entirely self-sustaining. It runs on Toyota’s patented Smug Superiority Aura Drive, which gathers energy from the Prius driver himself as he silently pities the other drivers on the road for piloting vehicles that get less than 50 miles to the gallon.
