Are we falling more in love with Toyota’s hybrids, or are we too burned out on the Prius line to care about what makes the Toyota Prius C special? Find out.
Redesigned airbags and structural improvements to the front end and occupant compartment make the 2015 Toyota Prius C one of the safest new cars available.
As leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime arguably got the coolest name out of all of the Transformers (Starscream gets my vote for runner-up). But the Transformers movie franchise has always been the realm of General Motors, so why did Toyota register the “Prius Prime” trademark earlier this year? As the Kaizen Factor blog notes, […]
Toyota is preparing a new marketing campaign ahead of the launch of the 2016 Prius, which could achieve as much as 60 MPG with an “Eco” variant.
In Japan, Toyota’s Prius C, which is the subcompact version of the Prius, is called the Aqua. Toyota has developed a more aesthetically sporty conceptual version of it called the Aqua G, with more aggressive styling, an adjusted suspension, and some other things that make it more appealing to young people.
The Ford C-Max Hybrid seems to be the Blue Oval’s answer to the Toyota Prius V, offering a versatile crossover vehicle with high-mpg figures. Just how high we didn’t know until this week. The upcoming C-Max Hybrid will reportedly deliver 47 mpg in city driving and 44 mpg on the highway, handily beating the Prius […]
The Toyota Prius has remained at the front of the MPG pack for more than a decade now, and in that time it has garnered a reputation as a reliable, cost-effective solution to high gas prices. Toyota has expanded the Prius lineup to include a compact and a larger minivan, but rivals are closing the mineshaft, errr, MPG gap. So how does Toyota intend to keep the Prius on top?
I’m not sure how long ago it was when I first heard that Toyota was looking to move Prius production to the United States. Besides being their biggest market, Toyota was probably hoping to stifle some criticism regarding the green credentials of a car that is produced from parts shipped all over the world (sometimes […]
As with any good carnival, there were rides aplenty at the 2012 Chicago auto show … and Toyota had a huge section of floorspace reserved for guests to hop into the passenger seat of a 3rd-gen Prius, Prius v, or a Camry hybrid and experience the hybrid magic at work. Fellow Gas2 writer Jo Borras […]
2012’s Chicago auto show was, in many ways, very similar to 2011’s Chicago auto show. For instance, GM is still pushing CNG commercial vans, the boys and girls at Scion found just the right mix of clever and whimsy to steal my heart, there was a new (boring) Honda that got upstaged by its super-slick […]
There are little Prii, big Prii, plug-in Prii, racing Prii, and now – just revealed at this weekend’s Tokyo Auto Salon – there are full-fledged, fully-equipped, and very Real Toyota Prius camper vans. Starting with a new, 3rd-gen Prius, the conversion company adds a streamlined, fiber-reinforced plastic shell that expands the Prius’ interior into something […]
Banking on the success of the Prius brand, Toyota has expanded its hybrid offerings three-fold with the Prius Plug-In, Prius V, and upcoming Prius C. While both the Plug-In and V models of the Prius offer substantial steps up in technology and space (respectively), it is the diminutive Prius C that seems to have captured […]
Last January Toyota announced the expansion of the Prius hybrid lineupto include a larger “V” model, a plug-in hybrid, and a smaller, sportier compact, the Prius C. While Toyota has not officially released any info or images of the Prius C, a recently leaked brochure gives us a clearer picture of what to expect.
The promise of an expanded Prius lineup has gotten a lot of people excited. We already know about the larger Prius V and the Plug-In Prius that offers 15 miles of all-electric range. What we haven’t heard too much about is the smaller, sportier compact Prius. Well now the rumor mill is churning, and the compact Prius reportedly could offer up to 94 mpg.
It’s no secret that Toyota is planning to add production versions of its Prius c subcompact and Prius v micro van concepts to its growing Prius sub-brand. The latest news out of Toyota, though, suggests that a new (previously unseen) 2-door coupe may emerge hot on the heels of those 2 new Prii as early as […]
