The next generation of the hybrid hatchback will be revealed at the Los Angeles auto show next week, and these teasers give a glimpse at its styling.
If the brand-new Toyota teaser images are any indication, the Prius hybrid is about to undergo a significant overhaul.
The images were posted on Toyota’s Japanese social media accounts and feature the words “Hybrid Reborn,” which could refer to the company’s first hybrid hatchback. The images also confirm a reveal date of November 16 for the new model.
The fifth generation of the Prius will soon be released, and its outline is pretty obvious. But the recognised form, which aids in the vehicle’s aerodynamic profile, might get some fresh details. The headlamp in one of the teaser images resembles the design language on numerous Toyota concept cars, including some of the brand’s most recent EV concepts and the Toyota Crown compact crossover, also known as the Sport-type in Japan.
Although we are unsure of what to expect from the new hybrid Prius powertrain, we can be confident that it will aim for better fuel economy than the present model, which can get up to 56 mpg combined according to the EPA. In comparison to the outgoing car’s 25-mile range on a fully charged battery, the Prius Prime plug-in hybrid is set to make a comeback and should have a larger battery pack.
Next week will bring further details as Toyota gets ready to unveil the redesigned 2023 Prius in Los Angeles auto show.
