This month the Toyota Prius is ten years old and you've surely all been celebrating. If you haven't already hacked your favorite hybrid, now is your chance. For at least the several years, Japanese market Priuses have been equipped with an EV mode button that would force the car to operate on batteries alone at low speeds. Back in 2006 the hacker magazine of choice, Make, published a how to on installing your own EV mode button in a US market Prius. If you're feeling adventurous and your car is out of warranty (because it surely will be after you try this), now is the time. Hack away.
