this. Today is a rainy day. Is it normal? In the electric mode, it can not be seen. But when I accelerate , high emission can be seen.

Was the temperature cold? It's possible that most of what you were seeing was water vapor.































How many miles are on the car? The 1NZ engine in the 1st and 2nd generation Prii can start to consume some oil once it's traveled a few thousand miles. If the smoke you saw was blue, you may have increased oil consumption.

Probably water vapour. The hydrogen and carbon in fuel combine with oxygen to form carbon dioxide and dihydrogen monoxide (water). On a rainy day, the relative humidity is very high and the air cannot absorb any more water vapour, so it condenses into visible moisture.































Drive the car again when it is warm and sunny and it will probably go away.
