Toyota Prius c Completes the Prius Family of Vehicles
Following the U.S. debut of the all-new 2012 Prius c at the 2012 North
American International Auto Show here, Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc.,
plans to bring this dynamically styled, five-door hatchback to market in March
of 2012, and introduce Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive to the subcompact segment.
The letter “c” represents “city” in the Prius c name.
Designed to function as an urban-friendly vehicle with an engaging driving
experience, hatchback utility, and a city fuel economy rating of 53 mpg, Prius
c offers the highest city mpg rating of any vehicle without a plug. The
all-new Prius c joins the Prius Family, which includes the third
generation Prius Liftback, the versatile new Prius v and the Prius
Plug-in Hybrid, which will debut in early 2012.
