Toyota revolutionizes the Prius, this is how it has changed over the years

The Japanese company presented the fifth generation of its hybrid, which is sportier and more dynamic. It will hit the market in spring 2023

Change, evolve so as not to lose leadership. Toyota must have thought of this when it designed the new Prius, the hybrid par excellence, presented in preview at the Los Angeles Motor Show. There are many changes compared to the past , both technical and aesthetic. The first element to change is the power of the hybrid engine, which, compared to the past, will only be plug-in hybrid (with external rechargeable battery). The powertrain combines a 148 HP 2-litre four-cylinder engine with a 160 HP electric engine powered by a 13.6 kWh lithium-ion battery (electric mileage increases by 50%).


The overall power of the system is 223 horsepower, useful for pushing the car from 0 to 100 in 6.7 seconds. The bodywork has a much more dynamic and western style, characterized by a fluid line, practically like a coupé. 449 cm long (9 cm less than the previous generation), 178.2 cm wide (2.2 cm less), 142 cm high (5 cm less), with a wheelbase of 275 cm (5 cm more), the new Prius conveys the sensation of being glued to the asphalt. Its arrival on the market is expected in the spring of 2023. But how has the Toyota Prius changed over time? Below is the gallery showing the evolution of the species .
