2018 Los Angeles Motor Show: New Toyota Prius gets all-wheel drive

2018 Los Angeles Motor Show: New Toyota Prius gets all-wheel drive

Toyota has got a packed show floor for the 2018 Los Angeles Motor Show. There are multiple debuts including the introduction of the Corolla hybrid and TRD versions of the Camry and the Avalon. However, it’s the all-wheel drive Prius that’s really caught our interest.  

The base and the engine is pretty much the same as the 2018 model. The Prius still rides on the same Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) GA-C platform and it continues to feature a 1.8-litre petrol engine with an electric motor. However, what’s entirely new is the fact that the Prius can now be had with an all-wheel drive. 

Dubbed Prius Hybrid AWD-e, this new addition to the range features a second electric motor that’s mounted to the rear axle. Toyota says that it’s always working under 12kmph and can assist the front wheels if it detects wheel spin between 12kmph and 70kmph. According to Toyota, the purpose of introducing the Prius AWD-e is to offer more traction in certain conditions including inclement weather, snow or rain, giving the buyers more usability. 

The new Toyota Prius range including the all-wheel drive version is now headed for its European debut at the Brussels Motor Show in January.
