Do you need to warm up a Prius?

Is it bad to leave a Prius idling?

For short stops, when you’re not leaving the car, it really doesn’t matter. If it’s very hot/cold you can leave the climate control running and the gas engine will cut in if the battery needs some juice. If you leave it running, hit the PARK button. One way or the other, it won’t hurt anything.
