European-spec Toyota Prius+

Yesterday at Geneva, Toyota unveiled the European version of the Prius+ MPV, known in the United States as the Prius V where it has only five seats. The EU-spec model will be available with a seven-seat configuration and sales will commence early next year according to the manufacturer. In addition, it will have three middle row seats that can be folded individually (instead of the US 60/40 split) and a 50/50 folding third-row seat.

The car will have a fuel consumption of about 5.9 liters / 100 km thanks to the hybrid powertrain and a very low drag coefficient of only 0.29. It will be the first Toyota non-plug-in hybrid that will use a lithium-ion battery pack and it will feature three driving modes: EV, ECO and POWER, just like the Prius.
