Toyota Prius+ is Europe's first full hybrid seven-seater. Designed from the ground up, Prius+ provides significant extra space, while retaining all the traditional attributes of Prius such as the lowest fuel consumption of any seven-seater on the market.
With its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2011, Prius+ is a further expansion of the Toyota Prius family, joining Prius and Prius Plug-in Hybrid.
This new vehicle offers three, independent, split/folding second row seats and a 50:50 split/folding third tier. The sleek, bold styling features an extended roofline with an integral, panoramic sunroof, retaining the iconic Prius silhouette and its characteristic aerodynamic qualities. Sharp-edged headlamps and aero-corners feature alongside distinctive rear styling.
The latest generation of Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive® powertrain found in Prius+ includes a lithium-ion battery pack, installed entirely beneath the second row seating, offering no compromise to the seven-seat passenger accommodation or loadspace of the MPV-style interior.
As in the standard Prius, the Prius+ features three ‘on-demand’ drive modes to increase the capabilities of the full hybrid powertrain, including the EV mode for zero emissions, zero fuel consumption, all-electric driving.
Prius+ will be on sale in the first half of 2012.
