2016 Toyota Prius leaks in China, showing it ALL
Published on September 9, 2015 by W.E. Ning
This is the all new 2016 Toyota Prius, showing it all inside and out. The 2016 Toyota Prius will officially launch in Las Vegas at 2400 tonight, but China got it first, as usual. The new Prius will have its public debut on the Frankfurt Auto Show that starts on September 17, and its China debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show in early December. The 2016 Prius will also be manufactured in China starting in late 2016.
An absolutely daring design and one you won’t easily miss on the road, or forget when you get home, or when you sleep. That is probably a good thing for the ultra hip in San Fransisco and Shanghai, but mainstream..? An the other side, the first Prius was daring too when it arrived, and it certainly outsold all expectations.
With the Mirai fuel cell vehicle. The Prius looks pretty in comparison.
The interior is completely new. Central instrument pod and a large touch screen in the center console.
A few specs have come up with the pics: the 2016 Prius stands on a new ‘TNGA’ platform. The petrol engine is a 1.8 liter four. Combined output of the hybrid system is 150 hp. Range in pure electric mode is up to a massive 56 kilometer, compared to only 17.7 kilometer on the old Prius. No word yet on range, but rumors say it will be somewhere around 60 mpg. A photo, see below, of the instrument panel shows an average fuel economy of 4.0 liter per 100 kilometer.
Steering wheel rather simple for such a high tech car. Start-stop button in blue.
Drive selector looks ultra hip. In blue too, naturally. Electronic parking brake on the left.
The instruments reveal an average fuel economy of 4.0 liter per 100 kilometer.
Sporty seats, sleek center tunnel, but a lot of gray and some more gray.
Those lights keep me sharp. Don’t need coffee today.
Parked under a tunnel.
Shark fin antenna and a rather large spoiler on the rear.
Those lights keep me sharp. Don’t need coffee today and tomorrow.
