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.
