Contrary to what some may believe, the Prius can easily reach and maintain any freeway speed needed. I have read here that a Prius may not be able to keep up a high speed (> 60?) during an extended climb up a mountain-type grade, but I have not experienced that.I drove 725 miles on Friday and 770 miles today.
If a Prius is the slowest car on the road then it is because the driver is driving it slow on purpose. I blew the doors off a 50 MPH Jeep in a 55 zone today.
The Prius can climb any grade the Prius can climb until the Prius runs out of gasoline. Traction battery capacity has nothing to do with it.
