In the next Frankfurt Motor Show 2015 will be presented in public the new Toyota Prius. The introduction of the fourth generation of the product marks the premiere global brand platform and incorporating smaller and more efficient batteries.
According to Toyota, the new Prius seeks to improve the strengths and achievements of his predecessors and is preparing to make a new benchmark for fuel economy, emissions and efficiency. How? By incorporating new technologies and ways of using smarter its hybrid architecture.
This fourth generation platform based on the first result of the new global architecture of the Japanese brand called Toyota New Global Architecture (tnga). This gives the new Toyota Prius a lower center of gravity for better response and stability. It also gives designers more freedom to create a vehicle with lower general and more athletic profile. Like whether or not is another matter.
Cargo space has been increased by using a smaller and more energy density hybrid battery, and also thanks to the new system of double wishbone rear suspension, features that do not affect the capacity of the trunk. The body is 6 cm longer, 1.5 cm wider, and 2 cm lower than its predecessor.
In addition, the set of safety systems Safety Sense Toyota has expanded into the new Prius with the addition of a managed Adaptive Cruise Control radar and pedestrian detection function for the system Pre-Crash Safety. Other systems that add to this are the fourth generation full LED lights, which now have a new type of lighting more powerful yet efficient.
The full hybrid hybrid system has been extensively revised to improve efficiency, reduce weight and performance tuning. The engine design changes have allowed to get more than 40% thermal efficiency, the best performance in the world for a combustion engine.
Other hybrid components have become more compact and have relocated to optimize the design, which also helps to lower the center of gravity of the vehicle. The new hybrid nickel metal hydride battery is more compact, and its durability and capacity have also greatly improved. With regard to mechanical combustion, the 1.8-liter remained, but with a number of improvements not yet reported.
As it is a classic in these prior to a large room mini-developments, for now more details, equipment, services, or anything like that are unknown.
Beyond a world premiere was held in Las Vegas, it is not until next year when we know further week, as is a recurring said these days "when the IAA opens its doors to the public and press."
