The current fourth generation Toyota appeared in 2015. Therefore, the update may appear pretty soon.

Toyota is preparing to upgrade its Prius. The Japanese portal Mag-X reports this with reference to its own sources in the company. The new generation will be the fifth in a row. It is noteworthy that the novelty should retain the TNGA-C platform, but the design of the car will be completely redesigned.

It is expected that from the point of view of the exterior, the novelty may follow the path of the Mirai model, which, after a generation change, changed its futuristic design to a more classic sporty one. Some exterior parts will carry over to the vehicle from the Toyota LQ concept car, which was unveiled in 2019.

From a technical point of view, big changes are worth waiting for – when the Prius first debuted on the market, it was able to surprise with its hybrid engine. Now this is far from news.

It is possible that the new Prius will receive a battery of increased capacity with the ability to charge from the mains.

The all-electric version may also be on sale. On the Russian market, the fourth generation of the car was sold in 2016-2017.

Meanwhile, Toyota has told about the start of pre-orders for the new Land Cruiser 300 SUV. Orders will be accepted long before the debut of the novelty. Although it is possible that Toyota will surprise and hold a presentation earlier.
