does cold climate apparently kills Prius battery
I was considering Prius as my next car because gas mileage is of paramount importance for me, my daily commute is 20km/12 miles and I have seen few Priuses here in my country - Mongolia.
However, people I spoke with advised me against it saying cold climate ( -30 Celcius is not unusual) kills Prius battery and after couple years you have to buy new battery for $2500 or something. Is this true and does anyone knows cold climate hybrid car?
Regards from faraway cold Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia!
