The world’s largest car maker Toyota is greatly agonized with the fact that it’s capable and reliable cars are not the celebrated lookers in the world. The Toyota cars though are much praised round the globe, are hardly acclaimed as stylish models. The more fashionable and style conscious modern car buyers are thus increasingly shirking the Toyota cars which vouch by the conservative design language. Toyota has thus, made it a crucial point to make its future cars alluringly designed to engage its customers.
Toyota’s new moto of ‘Waku Doki’ or heart racing cars will be culminated in its new generation cars, and will debut with the next-gen Prius Hybrid, Toyota’s very famous hybrid baby. However, Toyota’s excessive focus on a new design language had also resulted in a bit of an awkward looking Prius, which is again set to change.
Rumor has it that the final design proposal for that of the all new Prius Hybrid was turned down in 2013 by Toyota’s top executives, who are totally focused on the company president’s stress on great new styling.
The search for a great engaging design for the new Prius already caused delays in its unveiling to the world, which was originally planned to happen in 2014 itself. However, this was also not feasible as the final shape and construction of the car was just approved by the company in this year’s April. The celebrated hybrid car is expected to hit the production line towards the end of 2015.
The all new Toyota Prius is not revealed as yet and its design is strictly under the wraps to keep the important secret. Though the design of the new Prius is not known as yet, it is certain that Toyota is very busy working on a great looking new sort of hybrid car which is not expected to be seen in the recent times. Surely, the Prius deserves this special treatment from Toyota owing to its grand global status and popularity.
Moreover, Toyota will probably also have more remarkable design differences between the regular hybrid variants and the plug-in variants of the next generation Prius. Again, how these design appeal will be different are not particularly known as yet. However, the plug-in Prius variants are expected to feature a more demure design for audience appeal, while the regular Prius is expected to look fancier.
It is also a good point to mention, that Toyota has already attained admirable design language as it endowed on the Mirai fuel cell vehicle that has just gone on sale. The Mirai is already an epitome of Toyota’s great future design language. However, the Mirai kind of design is not expected to be featured on the next-gen Prius, as it will have completely different individual styling.
It is surely hoped that the Japanese car major gives hints of the superb styling of the FT-1 concept and the C-HR concept in the all new Prius to make it an awesome head turner.
