Toyota Introduced The Most Fuel-Efficient Car In The Prius Series

With The Unveiling Of The 2023 Prius Model, The Japanese Company Toyota Gave It The Title Of The Most Fuel-Efficient Car In The Prius Series. 

The new Prius consumes only about 4 liters of fuel per hundred kilometers.

On the eve of the 9th Los Angeles Auto Show 2022, Toyota unveiled the latest Prius car as the most fuel-efficient model of this series. According to Toyota estimates, the combined fuel consumption of the base model and the front axle of this car is about 57 mpg, equivalent to 24 km per liter.

In other words, the said car consumes only about 4 liters of fuel per hundred kilometers. Toyota has designed the 2023 Prius in LE, XLE, and Limited grades, which in addition to having a lower center of gravity, are more comprehensive and have a lower driving position.

The new car’s roof is 2 inches lower than the previous model, and the rear is 1 inch wider. Toyota has been looking for a sportier and more modern look with the help of larger wheels on the XLE and Limited models.

However, the changes in the new Prius do not end with its appearance, and performance improvements are also seen in it. The 2023 Prius uses Toyota’s fifth-generation hybrid engine and a new lithium-ion battery that is 15% more efficient than nickel batteries.

This means the Japanese company has produced a smaller, lighter battery without losing performance.

However, since the Prius is a hybrid car and does not rely solely on electric power, Toyota has included a larger 2-liter gasoline engine.
