the Prius HV is discontinued the PHEV lives on 

It’s unlike Devon Aygo to give incorrect information so I do wonder if there is some truth in the Prius PHEV being discontinued. I must admit I’m quite sad about the Prius EV being discontinued but I guess the world must move on!

Re read what I wrote. 

BOTH versions did disappear from the Toyota UK website the other week.

The plug in Prius is now BACK on the Toyota UK website when I checked before I made my last reply.

Are you defending the FAKE NEWS or agreeing I’m correct?

Lee (Devon Aygo) works for a Toyota dealer, and his topic about the Prius PHEV being discontinued was only posted 4 hours ago.

His topic will remain on the Prius Club, and I'm sure he will be able to confirm what is happening shortly.

As mentioned above I do work at a dealer and whilst iI have no reason to lie or need to defend my comment from such accusations, here is a snip from a system called source used by Toyota to pass information to dealers, perhaps check with your "person in the know" pop back and apologise?

Lots of talk out there regards an all new 2023 Prius so fingers crossed this is just a temporary move dropping slower sellers to free up resources for faster moving cars.

That is a positive news. 👍 Do you know something more about gen 5 hybrid drivetrain? Are these going to be same engine 2.0 like in Corolla or completely new set up? 
Thanks 🙏

Hi Lee, that’s very interesting. I was resigned to the fact that I’d keep my 2016 Prius for as long as I could, but if Toyota do produce a Gen 5 Prius, I’m certainly interested. It would be such a shame that after the car built purely as a hybrid & broke the mould so to speak, should be dispensed with. We’ve all, eventually, got to get used to driving ev vehicles if the present government gets its way, but for now & up to 2035, hybrid vehicles can continue to be sold from new so hopefully a new Prius model will be on the cards!

Nothing much has been given away as yet however I believe Corolla Cross will be the first car we get with the 5th Gen Hybrid system see: HERE

It's not a technical reason, more symbolic - It's the flagship for their hybrids, and is supposed to be the most hybridy of the hybrids, hence why it has a slightly weird but more aerodynamic shape, less blingy wheels etc.

Just a genuine question, given that all Toyotas share the same hybrid tech what is it about the Prius that is special?

The Prius is special as Brian Griffin drives one.Brian.thumb.jpg.9f9cd2188619189e28830c859d1ce9c1.jpg

 

The Prius is considered to be the mother of all Toyota & Lexus hybrids.

It is the Toyota hybrid that has been designed to cut through the air efficiently. It’s air drag is possibly the lowest of “standard” cars, before you get to the expensive “sports” cars.          
Because of that I have done two journeys where I have achieved over 90mpg, one a 100mile at 92mpg (journey home after buying from a dealer) and a 50mile at 96mpg. Many journeys over 80mpg. Lifetime mpg over 37k miles is in excess of 70mpg. It just keeps giving.              
I understand the 2020 Prius is even more efficient.

Shape, weight and the fact that it’s made in Japan only. Prius ❤️🚙✌️

Cutted in and edited from another similar thread -

Prius was, sadly enough, discontinued in Sweden as early as 2020. Prius was not much of an hit here in "Estimate and SUV land".

Think Prius wasn´t that much of an "family car" and a bit to low for most/a lot of (thank You "Catlover" for adequate input on this) senior buyers.

But as a 1-4 persons, without any luggage, car its unbeatable in effency .

We have been driven our Prius PHV 2018 1600km since april - 21 and it awerages 1.7L /100km ( 70% on pure ev)

 

We will trade in our Prius+ 2017 and Prius PHV 2018 for a Demo RAV 4 PHEV 2020 to morrow monday though

If there is a new plug in prius, hopefully it will have a bigger Battery capacity and more boot space (but not additional length otherwise it won't fit on my drive).

And the ability to charge at 22kW.
