55 MPG Could Become a Reality for Toyota in 2015

November 14th, 2013 by

2015 Toyota Prius Spy Without a doubt, the Prius is the best selling products of Japanese car maker, Toyota. Currently on its third generation, the Prius has become a globally recognized model. This is why when Toyota unveiled its plan for a hybrid version on the fourth generation, it automatically led to a frenzy. And since there’s nothing official yet about the Prius 2015, all that’s left are some speculations and rumors on what will be in store for this particular model.

Better Toyota Prius MPG

Over the years, the MPG on the previous Toyota Prius models increases by 10 percent on each generation. With the current Prius offering around 50 MPG combined, the 2015 Toyota Prius MPG may reach up to 55 MPG. And in a nutshell, this means that the vehicle will be better for fuel economy.

To turn this into a reality, the car manufacturer is currently working to improve its Hybrid Synergy Drive powertrain to a newer version that will contain more energy-dense batteries, a more thermally-efficient engine, and smaller electric motors.

Other Upgrades

Apart from a higher Toyota Prius MPG, the 2015 model is expected to have a stiffer structure, lower center of gravity, and better driving dynamics. With regards to design, a roomier interior was recently promised.

The 2015 Toyota Prius is reported to make its debut by late 2014 and will probably start selling in the early quarter of 2015.
