In 1997, the famous Japanese Automobile manufacturer Toyota started producing a new series of environmentally-friendly full hybrid electric cars, named "Prius". Toyota Prius is considered as one of the cleanest vehicles sold in the US, as well as one of the most fuel efficient gasoline-powered cars without plug-in capability on the American market. The Prius has been manufactured in four generations.
The first generation (1997–2003) was classified as a compact car and featured 4-door sedan body style. It was available with front-engine, front-wheel drive layout. Toyota equipped the first Prius models with 1.5 L 1NZ-FXE I4 gasoline hybrid engine. This generation was very successful – it has become the first mass-produced gasoline-electric hybrid car in the world and has won the Japanese Car of the Year 1997 Award.
Unlike the first generation, all next generations are classified as mid-size cars. The second generation (2003–2009) came with a new design and 5-door liftback body style. The interior was expanded and more space for luggage was provided. The second generation featured better aerodynamics and was more environmentally-friendly in comparison with the previous one.
The third generation started in 2009. It came with even better aerodynamics and superior fuel efficiency. This generation featured two new gasoline hybrid engine options – 1.8 L 2ZR-FXE I4 and 1.8 L 5ZR-FXE I4 (the last one was available in China). In 2011, Toyota Prius was upgraded with some exterior modifications and improved infotainment system. A variety of useful features were provided as well, like the optional solar panel on the roof.
The fourth generation was launched on December, 2015. This newest generation utilizes Toyota's innovative New Global Architecture (TNGA) modular platform. Thanks to the TNGA platform, the new Prius has lower center of gravity and enhanced structural rigidity. This, in turn, provides superior handling, aerodynamics, and swiftness. The design was updated as well – with new exterior and larger interior. This generation is also available with upgraded batteries, smaller electric motors with higher power density, and advanced gasoline engine technologies. And the final result is an attractive, lightweight car that features high fuel efficiency at an affordable cost.
