In simple terms, if you are in "eco" mode, you have to push the gas pedal harder to get the same result you get in "power mode." The "eco mode" is the default to help squeeze out the most MPG. The Prius is good for running around/city driving (it is even "zippy" in "power" mode), but, when I am in the Prius, I miss the torqure of my HEMI!
