Toyota Prius: Toyota’s Flagship Hybrid Electric Vehicle

Shaped by exceptional aerodynamics and enhanced driving dynamics, the Prius transcends the current concept of what a hybrid vehicle can be. Take a step beyond and break through to a new world. Complementing the vehicle’s futuristic design and comfortable cabin is the outstanding driving and environmental performance enabled by a fuel-efficient and powerful engine.

ENGINE & MECHANICAL FEATURES

The Prius can be driven entirely on electrical ‎power with zero-fuel consumption and tailpipe emissions, or by combining the power generated from both the petrol ‎engine and two electric motors, depending on the vehicle’s speed and customer’s driving behavior. ‎Its hybrid batteries are continuously charged by either the petrol ‎engine or when decelerating and braking, eliminating the need to plug in a power cord. Furthermore, the hybrid electric model features a host of advanced technologies, yet drives like any other conventional vehicle and ‎does not require special fuel.

- 1.8L 4-Cylinder Engine (95 HP) with Hybrid Synergy Drive Electric Motor (71 HP)
- Hybrid System Net Power: 121 HP
- Electronically Controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT)
- Driving Mode Switch (EV/Eco/Power)
- Front-Wheel Drive
- Electric Power Steering

 

TECHNOLOGY

Toyota continues to play a leading role in constantly innovating and developing technologies that protect the environment, which is also a strategic imperative that forms the cornerstone of the company’s business. Electrification of vehicles has been an indispensable focus for Toyota since 1997 and the company has launched a variety of HEVs in the past two decades under the lead of the Toyota Prius. The hybrid system mates a motor that provides power at low speeds with an engine that delivers it at high speeds, and optimizes control of both for efficient driving performance.

Engine Stop
For excellent fuel efficiency, the engine automatically cuts out when the Prius is stopped in traffic. Even while driving, the engine will cut out in response to driving conditions. At start-up, the Prius drives only with the motor.

Regenerative Brake System
This system coordinates control with the compact, lightweight ECB (Electronically Controlled Brake System) to provide the optimum braking force relative to brake pedal operation, at the same time enabling highly-efficient energy regeneration with the engine completely stopped.

Highly-Efficient Control
To use the engine and the motor effectively in various driving conditions and speeds, it precisely integrates and controls their operation to realize optimum fuel efficiency and low emissions.

EXTERIOR

FEATURES

The Prius’ sharp lines, sleek panels and aerodynamic fins all work in tandem to ensure smooth airflow, which in turn further improve its fuel efficiency. Each of the Prius’ futuristic features is purposely engineered to turn heads wherever you go.

At the rear, new combination lamps focus the eye on a strong horizontal line to emphasize the vehicle’s low center of gravity and are fitted with new-design light guides. The powerful effect is heightened by a new inverted trapezoid shape integrated into the tailgate around the license plate.

The peak point of the bumper has been raised to generate a coherent, flowing line down the sides of the vehicle, producing a more dynamic, flowing silhouette.

Sharp, slim new headlight units emphasize a sweeping horizontal line that evokes a wide and planted stance and new bi-beam LEDs give a wider field of illumination.
