Some facts about new Prius – Toyota’s most popular Hybrid
The design is based on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA). TNGA will help us build cars using standardised platforms, powertrains and major components, to make cars that require fewer resources to build, give a safer and more enjoyable drive, and have even greater fuel-efficiency.
The powertrain is an updated version of the existing combination of a 1.8-litre petrol engine and an electric motor as outlined above, featuring a more compact nickel-metal hydride battery pack that's quicker to charge.
The Prius’ regenerative braking system has also been updated, introducing a new active hydraulic booster that's designed to be quieter and give a more natural feel to the brake pedal.
