2015 Toyota Prius spied for the first time

The next generation Toyota Prius has been caught testing in California and here we have the first spy shots of the fully disguised prototype.

The new Prius is based on a new platform that will also underpin other models like Corolla, Camry and RAV4.

Despite wearing a heavy camouflage we can see the next-gen Prius will keep its iconic wedge-shape, though it is expected to be sleeker, lighter, more efficient and more aerodynamic than the current model.

We also get to see part of the interior that reveals a redesigned dashboard with the main cluster moved from the dash behind the steering wheel with some instruments likely to be moved to the centre stack. We also get see the “EV mode” button.

It is not known yet will the Prius continue to use Nickel Metal Hydride batteries or switch to lithium-ion batteries. The 1.8-litre petrol engine is expected to carry over with some improvements to power and fuel economy. The electric motor is also expected to deliver more power.

The next Prius will likely continue to include also c and v variants, as well as this they will likely be a favourite for Uber drivers, if you’re interested in driving for uber look into finding uber approved cars like this Prius
