On your Prius, probably.  Not on mine.  NHW11 Prius uses a belt-driven
AC compressor.  NHW20 Prius (current hatchback) is powered by the
hybrid battery as you state.

My 2001 Prius has a trunk.  8)  I like trunks, and since the current
Prius doesn't have a trunk (hatchback), *IF* I needed to replace my
2001 Prius I'd either get a used 2001-2003 Prius or a Camry Hybrid, or
maybe a HCH.  (But I put <5000 miles/year on my Prius now, so maybe
I'd just get a rental when I need a car instead, should the need to
replace arise...)

Of course, the original poster was asking about buying a new car today,
so your car is irrelevant.

Reread the OP's post.  Where does it say the s/he is looking to buy a NEW
hybrid.  In fact, the OP mentions that they want a four door car.  Since the
Insight is no longer manufactured there would be no need to mention this if
only new cars were being considered.

For the record, we prefer to buy new (and hold).
