TOYOTA PRIUS V

Along with the much smaller and sportier Prius C Concept, Toyota has today unveiled the second model in the growing Prius range, the 2012 Toyota Prius V.

Where the Prius C has the young urbanite covered, the larger Prius V is more of a 'people mover', offering 60 percent more storage space than the current 2010 Prius and greater head- and leg-room for passengers.

The Prius V will also feature a lightweight-resin panoramic moon roof, weighing around 40 percent less than a regular glass roof of the same size.

Inside, the Prius V will feature Toyota's new Entune multimedia system - the first Toyota model to offer the new technology. The system offers support for mobile internet with Microsoft's Bing search engine built in. It will also offer live weather and traffic updates, along with monitoring the best fuel prices in town.

Power is provided by the same 1.8 litre Atkinson-cycle petrol engine driving the regular Prius, mated to an electric motor. Power is listed at 73kW and 142Nm (plus 60kW and 207Nm for the electric motor).

More than anything else, Toyota is trumpeting the Prius V's exceptional fuel economy. On the combined cycle, the Prius V lists fuel consumption figures of just 5.9 l/100km (40mpg) - nestling it between the 3.9 l/100km of the Prius and 6.0 l/100km of the Hybrid Camry.

 

Australia

Speaking with TMR today, Toyota Australia's Mike Breen confirmed that the Prius V is under consideration for Australia, although no decision has been made as to when, or even if, it will join Toyota's local line-up.
