What is the Toyota Prius c’s top speed?

I live in the city, so I was going to get a Prius c because it’s compact and has great fuel economy. While I know it’s more practical than anything, I still want to have a bit of speed when I need it. What’s the top speed of the Toyota Prius C?

While the
Toyota Prius c
is most certainly made for pragmatism, it can still ramp up when you need it. The top speed of the Toyota Prius c is 106 mph with a 0-to-60 speed of around 11 seconds.
Behind a hybrid powertrain that features a 99-hp, 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine, and a 6.5-kWh, 144-volt nickel-metal hydride battery, the Prius c also manages 48 mpg in the city and 43 mpg on the highway. The key to the Prius c getting better fuel economy in the city is due to regenerative braking, which charges the battery when you brake.
While the Prius c isn’t a speed demon, it’s worthy of great protection through an affordable car insurance policy. That’s when the
