TOY­OTA Prius gets a re­fresh

Nam Wheels - - Front Page -

There are not many ve­hi­cles that can claim be­ing "gamechang­ers" like Toy­ota’s Prius can. It was the first hy­brid to be mass- pro­duced when it was launched in Ja­pan in 1997, thus mak­ing hy­brid tech­nol­ogy read­ily avail­able to the car mar­ket. How­ever, it was only with the launch of the se­cond Prius gen­er­a­tion ( in 2005) that South­ern Africa first tasted hy­brid tech­nol­ogy. In keep­ing with the Prius name - which means "front run­ner" in Latin - the new­gen­er­a­tion mar­vel con­tin­ues to build on its ‘ green- car’ cre­den­tials and now comes with even more tech­ni­cal break­throughs to reaf­firm its sta­tus as the world's best­loved hy­brid. In fact, Toy­ota had sold in ex­cess of 3.5 mil­lion Prius hy­brids be­fore the launch of this fourth­gen­er­a­tion model.
