The next-gen Toyota Prius is expected to be endowed with all the great things possible, starting from a great new design, to better fuel efficiency, to new technological enhancements, all are expected in one single package by the world’s auto enthusiasts. Being the world’s most popular Hybrid car, the Toyota Prius is definitely expected to come with everything most amazing in its all new avatar. Keeping in line with all these high expectations from the new Prius, Toyota is also speculated to be offering an all-wheel-drive version this time. Though there is no official word on it, the Prius fans all over the world are wishing for it certainly.
The Japanese car major is also expected to offer premium variants of the all new Prius with its electric motor which would drive the rear wheels. As per the reports of a Japanese publication, the lenient JC08 cycle which offers the fuel efficiency of 94 miles per gallon will be also more fuel efficient. The standard model of the Toyota Prius offers the fuel efficiency of 40 kilometers per liter, while the e-AWD version of the Hybrid car would offer a much lower fuel efficiency of 35 km per liter or 83 mpg.
As per the reports, the next generation model of the Toyota Prius is expected to increase its fuel efficiency to about 55 miles per gallon. However, an electric all wheel drive system option will definitely negatively affect this fuel economy gain to some extent. However, how much this will be affected is still uncertain, though the e-AWD is also not certain as yet itself. Moreover, Toyota might be incorporating the next-gen Prius with such technology so that the car manages to negate the fuel gobbling tendency of the electric All Wheel Drive system and offer the fuel efficiency that is expected from it.
The all new Toyota Prius is certainly a highly awaited car all over the globe as people are waiting for the car to launch very eagerly for quite some time. Moreover, there are many prospective Prius hybrid buyers are currently putting their new car shopping on hold hoping for the all new Prius to come soon with all its expected glory.
AWD or no AWD, the next generation Toyota Prius is certainly a car that deserves the entire buzz around it. The Japanese car major has endowed an all new design language on the next generation Toyota Prius. Apart from dynamic new looks, new technology, better performance and higher fuel economy, the all new Prius is also expected to offer several other new benefits in order to retain its position in the market. As the market competition is very stiff, the all-time favorite Toyota Prius has been witnessing lower sales as several other new rival hybrid models are cropping up.
The e-AWD version will surely add to the edge of the all new Prius. While the production version of the new Prius was recently revealed, it will hit the market early next year.
