When I start my 07 Prius in the morning and start driving after about a few hundred feet the engine seems to rev much higher as if the car had popped out of gear. This happens every time the first time I start the car and it happens only once. I don't think there is anything wrong with the car I am just curious about what it may be

If it detects that the battery needs a bit more charging it will do this for a bit. This is more noticable in my 01 after I have driven slowly around city streets for awhile mostly on electric mode. It will then rev up noticably higher when I accelerate the first time, until the battery receives some charging.

My new 2020 does that a few times while heading down the road.
