The vehicle is now powered by 1.8-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with Toyota's latest hybrid drive system that claims to return impressive fuel efficiency figure of 26.27kmpl.

Since launching the original Prius, in 1997, Toyota has developed hybrid versions for about 40 of its models, and has sold 10 million hybrid vehicles globally. Toyota also recently hit a major milestone, selling more than 10 million units of its hybrid cars across the world.

The new Toyota Prius consists of several new elements such as new LED fog lamps which complement the stylish LED headlamps with DRLs upfront.

But as more auto makers develop electric cars in response to tightening global emissions regulations, Toyota late a year ago set up a new division to speed up development of long-range electric cars.

Toyota believes that the Toyota Prius Prime could overwhelm the regular version of the Toyota Prius. It is set to launch in Europe and other countries in March. Inside, there is a heads-up display along with an electrically adjustable driver's seat.

The Camry hybrid is fitted with a hybrid exclusive 2.5 L engine teamed with an electric motor and puts out a combined power output of 202 bhp which is mated to a E-CVT transmission which allows for a responsive and frugal engine. A solar-charging system is also available for additional fees.

The 2017 Camry Hybrid further features a new wireless smartphone charger, new back guide monitor, power reclining rear seats and 3-zone automatic climate control. With an aim to contribute to resolution of social issues and sustainable growth of an automobile based society, we believe that environment-friendly vehicles will go a long way to remedy this.

The latest plug-in Prius sees Toyota widely endorsing lithium-ion batteries, marking a turning point for the company which for years had resisted the technology commonly used in all-battery electric vehicles, due to concerns over their cost, size and safety.
