Please note that the exact steps may vary slightly depending on the specific model year of your Prius, so it’s essential to refer to your owner’s manual for precise instructions. However, here’s a general guideline for changing the display from km/h to mph:

1. Start by making sure your Prius is in the “Ready” mode, which means the hybrid system is active, and the vehicle is ready to drive.

2. Access the Multi-Information Display (MID) on the instrument panel. You can usually do this by using the buttons on the steering wheel.

3. Navigate to the settings or customization menu on the MID. This may be labeled as “Settings,” “Setup,” or “Customization.”

4. Look for the option to change the units from metric to imperial or from km/h to mph. The exact wording may vary, but it typically refers to the units of measurement for speed.

5. Select the option to change the units to miles per hour (mph).

6. Confirm your selection, and the MID should now display speed in miles per hour instead of kilometers per hour.

7. If you have any additional preferences related to the display, you can customize them as needed while in the settings menu.

Again, please refer to your specific Prius model’s owner’s manual for precise instructions, as the steps may vary. Changing the units from km/h to mph is typically straightforward and can be accomplished through the MID settings.

Keep in mind that changing the speed display doesn’t affect the actual speed of the vehicle. It only changes the way speed is presented on the instrument panel. It’s important to drive within the legal speed limits of your region, whether using km/h or mph as the displayed unit.
