New Toyota Prius Made First European Debut at 2009 Geneva Motor Show

New 2010 Toyota Prius

New Prius: The world’s most advanced mainstream passenger car, Prius, stands as a motor industry milestone in vehicle powertrain development. Successive generations of the model have showcased Toyota’s commitment to environmental leadership and have led the company’s advance towards the creation of the ultimate eco-car.

New Prius remains a full hybrid that can run on its petrol engine or electric motor alone, or a combination of both, accordingly to driving conditions. Overall the Hybrid Synergy DriveĀ® system’s power, with a larger 1.8 VVT-i petrol engine and higher output electric motor, has been increased by 22 per cent, to 134 hp, while fuel economy improved by 10 per cent to 72.4 mpg (combined) and CO2 emissions reduced to just 89g/km, incredible figures for a D segment size car.

New Prius will go on sale during July.
