Toyota Prius c subcompact hybrid coming for spring

November 15th, 2011

From Green Right Now Reports

Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., will launch a  fuel-efficient hybrid at a more accessible price when the Prius c joins the Prius family of vehicles in the spring of 2012.  The U.S. debut of the Prius c will be next January at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The subcompact will join the Prius lineup and include Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive technology. The car¬† joins the third-generation Prius Liftback hybrid vehicle, as well as a new Prius v midsize hybrid vehicle and the Prius Plug-in Hybrid model, which will also debut next spring.

Toyota says the entry-level Prius c is aimed at youthful shoppers seeking fuel efficiency, technology, and spirited driving dynamics in the subcompact segment. The car is expected to deliver class-leading fuel economy better than 50 mpg in the city, which would be the highest city mpg of any non-plug-in vehicle.
