A lot of people argue against purchasing a new Toyota Prius battery because of the cost. Granted, buying a new one might set you up for life – or at least until your vehicle can no longer run properly. However, the expense is pretty big at around $4,000-$5,000.

Fortunately, if you’re low on cash, you can consider other options as well. Getting a used battery is probably the cheapest, since it also presents the most risks. Despite the fact that the provider might have the specs and can tell you how old or used the battery in question is, there’s always a risk that it was used more extensively. That means it will die much sooner than you’d expect.Toyota hybrid battery

A less affordable but somewhat more reliable solution is to get a refurbished Toyota Prius battery. For anything between $2,000 and $4,000, you can buy a more or less working Prius battery and even get a new warranty on it.

Of course, nothing can be guaranteed, and even if you get a brand new Toyota hybrid battery, your warranty will be the only thing protecting your purchase. With a good warranty, however, you can rest assured that you won’t have to pay more even if your brand new Prius battery breaks down when you least expect it. So ultimately, buying a new one is still your best option.
