TOKYO – Toyota is flipping the script for the next-generation Prius hybrid.
The gas-sipping nameplate, a byword for eco-friendly driving since its 1997 debut, won't be a whole lot greener with the redesigned fifth generation. But it will sure be a whole lot meaner.
On tap is a new range of more powerful drivetrains with significantly more oomph and a zero to 62 mph sprint time as quick as 6.7 seconds. Total output, for the plug-in at least, should top 200 hp.
