The 2023 Toyota Prius will feature a new powertrain and sleeker design, as well as improved fuel efficiency. While the current Prius gets 58 mpg city, 53 mpg highway, and 56 mpg combined, the new model will return higher mileage. The 2023 Toyota Prius Prime PHEV will have an EPA rating of 133 MPGe, and will be able to go 25 miles on electricity alone before it needs to use gasoline.
The Prius is in its fourth generation and arrived in the market in 2016. Toyota’s full electric Prius rivals include the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid SUV and the Toyota bZ4X crossover. However, the Prius remains a popular vehicle, even though it is increasingly being overshadowed by its rivals. In order to combat this trend, Toyota has announced the Prius Prime plug-in hybrid, which will be able to travel up to 25 miles on electric power alone.
A few teaser photos of the next-generation Toyota Prius have leaked, suggesting that its design is likely to be more aerodynamic. The vehicle’s profile suggests a cleaner, chiseled appearance, as well as a rear LED light bar. It will be based on a new platform that Toyota has developed for the brand. It could also feature a hydrogen-electric hybrid powertrain. The details are currently unknown, but we can expect a reveal at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
The Toyota Prius Prime will have a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with an electric motor and battery pack. It will also feature a continuously variable transmission. The Toyota Prius Prime will have 121 horsepower and get up to 54 mpg combined. The Prius Prime will be competing against the Nissan LEAF, the Kia Niro PHEV, and the Chevy Bolt.
The new Prius will be the fifth generation of the famous hybrid car. It will have the same basic design as the current model, but will use some of the technologies and components from Toyota’s flagship models. Its drivetrain will be redesigned and it will have improved fuel efficiency. It will also be more powerful, which should make it more attractive to consumers.
The Toyota Prius has always been a hit for Toyota, and it will be no different in 2023. A few teasers have shown what the next generation of the Prius might look like. Early teasers have shown that the new model will retain the Prius’ fastback design, but will get new headlights. It may also be an SUV, or it might even be a wagon. While we don’t know for sure, we’ll be watching for any signs of a major redesign.
The new Toyota Prius will also include advanced safety features, including autonomous emergency braking and adaptive cruise control. A standard seven-inch touchscreen is also included, as well as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi hotspot, and six-audio speakers. Other features of the new Prius include a built-in dashcam and home power sockets. The new Prius is also expected to be available in a plug-in hybrid version by the middle of next year.
