The features and design of the Prius model, which was first launched by Toyota in 1997, broke the record by selling more than 5 million copies since its release and is known as the creator of the hybrid class, has been renewed. Here are the 2023 Toyota Prius features…
2023 Toyota Prius features!
In the past 25 years, electric cars and even Tesla, which is among the most valuable companies of today, was not yet in our lives, and Toyota launched its 1st generation hybrid electric-gasoline car Prius. In a short time, it managed to make a name for itself in the US and Japanese markets.
Today, four-cylinder hybrid versions of this car with a volume of 1.8 liters and a power of 90 kW-121 HP are sold. However, the newly introduced 2023 Toyota Prius features are slightly different from its predecessor. Because this car uses the 2.0-liter 220-horsepower four-cylinder engine that we see in the 2023 Corolla models. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h is 6.7 seconds (it was 7.5 seconds for the Corolla).
In addition, it is stated that there is an improvement of around 50 percent on the battery side. While the 2022 version of the car has an 8.8 kWh battery, the 5th generation, which we will see on the roads in 2023, uses a 13.6 kWh battery pack. This brings the range of 39 miles (63km) to 58.5 (94.15km).
According to the official statement made by Totoya, this car will also have a version with solar panels. However, there is no such thing as going for months on a single charge like the prototypes we encountered in the past period. It will even add a range of 25-30 km per week, according to the statement.
It is expected that this car will be sold primarily in the USA and Japan, as in previous years, and will be released in limited numbers in some European countries. If it comes to Turkey, it will be 3 times more SCT compared to cars with a volume of 1.6 liters or less, according to the current base rates.
This will cause the car, which is sold abroad for around 24 thousand dollars, to be launched at the level of 1.5 million TL, while its competitors with low engine volume are sold for 700-800 thousand TL in Turkey. Therefore, it is not expected to come to our country.
