Bookings open for sportier Prius c

Postby admin » Tue Nov 06, 2012 3:50 am

SHAH ALAM: The Prius c will look even more appealing with the introduction of a sportier edition.

Bookings are now open for the 2013 Toyota PRIUS c TRD Sportivo version, garbed in sporty bodykit.

The standard Prius c, launched in February, has been well received locally, and is expected to contribute to the 6,000 Toyota and Lexus hybrid models that distributor UMW Toyota Motor aims to sell this year.

Running on the similar parallel/series hybrid drive technology found in the Prius, the Prius c’s system is more compact - a 1.5-litre 73bhp/111Nm engine coupled with a 61hp/169Nm electric motor.

The Prius c’s engine comes from the Toyota engine family line-up which includes the engine for the Vios model. The engine has however been modified to run on the higher compression Atkinson cycle which is more fuel efficient.

The five-door hatchback uses an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission unit and energy from regenerative braking will be saved in a 19.3kW nickel-metal hydride battery pack under the rear seats.
