2016 Toyota Prius spotted testing in California

The 2016 Toyota Prius has been spotted undergoing trials in California, US. The heavily camouflaged test mule hints at a more evolved design language for the fourth-generation hybrid car, which is expected to go on sale later this year, as a 2016 model.

Internally called 690A, the new Prius will continue to be based on Kamm-back body style seen in the current model, though it will adopt a more sedan like silhouette. The new Prius will be the first production model to be built around Toyota’s new modular Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), which will eventually underpin many other Toyota cars. 

The new Prius will be powered by a more efficient petrol engine and a smaller, yet more powerful ‘energy-dense’ motor. The new Prius will be 10 per cent more economical than the current model, which should push its efficiency figures up to 23kmpl. Also, for the first time, the new Prius will be available both as a standard hybrid and as a plug-in hybrid.
