Comparing Three Types of
Hybrid Battery Replacements


Malfunctioning parts of the hybrid battery are replaced or repaired (not available for all makes and models)

*Longevity varies greatly by vehicle


Heavily reconditioned with new cells, proactive replacement of other at-risk components, and extensive testing.

*More than 180K miles


OEM batteries straight from the factory. 100% new hybrid battery. Subject to availability.

*Less than 180K miles


New hybrid batteries are straight out of the factory (in our case, by the OEM).  Not only are the battery cells new, so is every piece in the battery.  Renewed hybrid batteries are heavily refurbished batteries with many new battery cells and some additional new or repaired parts. For repaired hybrid batteries, we replace faulty battery cells and replace any malfunctioning equipment.  We either repair your existing hybrid battery or, for the sake of speed, install an already repaired hybrid battery in your vehicle.

A new battery will likely last the remaining lifetime of the car (or more), a renewed battery will likely last for at least it’s warranty period, and a repaired battery will last a minimum of its warranty period – and depending on the vehicle – could last up to two years.

Hybrid vehicle owners have different goals with their cars.  Some people want a quick & cheap fix, while others want their car to last a long time.  We offer the three major types of hybrid battery replacement options so that you have a choice when shopping with us.

We currently service the Greater Indiana area.  Specifically, we can perform mobile installations (for some makes/models) in all of Indiana plus neighboring areas like Bloomington, IN, Champaign, IL, Cincinnati, OH, Dayton, OH, & Louisville, KY.  Our physical location is in Noblesville, IN just outside of Indianapolis, IN.

If your battery fails within the warranty period, just send us the diagnostic codes to review.  Assuming the battery is the issue, we will arrange your replacement service. See the warranty page for more information. 

Prices listed on this website include local installation at our Noblesville, IN (Indianapolis) location. Mobile service is available for many makes/models for an additional travel fee.

Prices also include any shipping/handling from the battery manufacturer to our location as well as any return shipping costs of your old battery.

Battery Buyback Protection

If you buy a new or renewed hybrid battery from us, and your car fails for another reason during the warranty period, we will buy back your battery.  This gives you some added peace of mind that your hybrid battery investment won’t necessarily go to waste if your car fails for a different reason.

Official offer will be made after an inspection of the battery. Subject to circumstances of the vehicle’s failure.

Toyota Prius Hybrid Battery Replacement

At Motorcells, we offer as many options as we can for hybrid battery replacement.  For older, high mileage vehicles may recommend a renewed battery for a lower cost.  For a Prius to go the distance, you’ll want to put in a new battery.  Give us a call and we can help you decide.

New, Renewed, or Repaired

Factory new Prius hybrid battery replacements are guaranteed for life at Motorcells.  Not only that, we offer a battery buyback program if you car fails for other reasons, but your battery is still good. New Prius batteries cost the most, but last the longest.Renewed (refurbished) batteries typically carry a 3-year warranty and contain many if not all new battery cells and some replaced parts. Renewed Prius batteries cost a bit less than new, and will typically match the remaining life of your car.Repaired prius batteries carry a Motorcells 90-day warranty and are meant to get you back on the road in the most cost-effective way possible by switching out poorly performing cells and a few other important processes, including load balancing.  However, depending on the model year, this can be a less reliable alternative – as other cells can go bad in the future. Repaired Prius batteries cost the least, but offer variable longevity based on the year of the vehicle.

Product Details (2001-2015) – Prius Replacement Battery

The Toyota Prius (2001-2015) uses a Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery pack located beneath the rear seat. This battery pack consists of 288 individual NiMH cells, arranged in 28 modules. The entire pack delivers a total voltage of 277.2 volts and a capacity of 6.5 amp-hours.

The primary function of the Prius NiMH battery is to assist the gasoline engine in powering the electric motor, significantly improving fuel efficiency. Additionally, it captures and stores regenerative braking energy generated when the car slows down or brakes, further enhancing efficiency.

Here’s a quick overview of the key specifications:

  • Battery Type: Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH)
  • Location: Underneath the rear seat
  • Voltage: 277.2 volts
  • Capacity: 6.5 amp-hours
  • Weight: Approximately 85 pounds (38.6 kg)
  • Dimensions: Roughly 34 inches long, 16 inches wide, and 7.5 inches tall (86.4 cm x 40.6 cm x 19.1 cm)

Please note: This information applies to Prius models from 2001 to 2015. For models after 2016, a different battery technology is used.

Product Details (2016-2024)

Newer Prius models (2016-2024) transitioned to a more advanced Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) battery pack. This battery is also located beneath the rear seat and plays a vital role in maximizing fuel efficiency and overall performance.

Compared to the NiMH battery, the Li-ion pack offers several advantages:

  • Lighter weight: Typically ranging from 42 to 80 lbs (19 to 36 kg) depending on the model, contributing to improved fuel economy.
  • Higher energy density: This allows for a similar battery size while delivering more power and efficiency.
  • Extended lifespan: Li-ion batteries generally last longer than NiMH batteries.

Here’s a summary of the key specifications:

  • Battery Type: Lithium-Ion (Li-ion)
  • Location: Underneath the rear seat
  • Voltage: (Details vary by model)
  • Capacity: (Details vary by model)
  • Weight: 42 – 80 lbs (19 – 36 kg) (varies by model)
  • Dimensions: Similar to NiMH battery size, but slightly smaller and lighter (exact dimensions vary by model)

Remember: This information applies to Prius models from 2016 to 2024. Always consult your owner’s manual or a qualified mechanic to ensure you select the correct battery replacement for your specific Prius model year and trim level.
