Go Green, Go Hybrid

Good news for all hybrid fans in Malaysia as Toyota recently launched the new Prius C together with the face-lifted Prius. Toyota certainly is taking the lead in the hybrid industry, setting benchmarks for the cars of the future by launching the new Prius C and face-lifted Prius. Both cars will be officially available in East Malaysia from 2nd of March onwards which is 4 days from now.

Prius C, the newly launched model is deemed to receive a warm welcome from hybrid fans. It is a trendy compact hybrid, much affordable than the Prius as it is priced from RM97,000 (on the road price). In terms of power of the car, the 1.5 litre 1NZ-FXE Atkinson cycle mill 73 PS and 111 Nm, in addition to the electric motor’s 61 PS and 169 Nm, is capable to provide a reasonably good boost of power. 

Despite the Prius C receiving most of the headlines, the face-lifted Prius which rolled in together with the Prius C model would most likely continue to be a hit in the market. A couple of added features alongside some refinements were made to the face-lifted Prius. Nevertheless, the pricing was maintained for the standard variant.

Do check out the toyota site for more details on the hybrids.
