Toyota Prius C JDM Brochure leak 18.10.2011

Production model for the Japanese domestic market will come with a petrol-electric hybrid drivetrain with 100 HP

A brochure for the upcoming JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) Toyota Prius c has been leaked.

The Prius c was previewed with a concept model last January in Detroit. Now we get a sneak peek at the production model ahead of its official debut at the Tokyo motor show in December.

The brochure provides details on what will be the smallest member of the Prius range of vehicles, which Toyota is introducing at a pretty brisk pace. The Prius c will be a compact urban-tourer that measures 3,995 mm (157 inches) in length, 1,695 mm (66.7 inches) in width and 1,445 mm (57 inches) in height.

Power comes from a petrol-electric hybrid drivetrain which couples a 1.4 liter unit with 74 PS (54 kW / 73 hp) and 111 Nm (82 lb-ft) of torque to an electric motor producing 61 PS (45 kW / 60 hp) and 169 Nm (125 lb-ft). Transmission is a CVT but maximum combined output, though, is only 100 PS (74 kW / 99 hp).

The Prius c's fuel-economy rating looks good but standards are different in Japan so these aren't the numbers you will be seeing in the North American and European variants. In Japan, Toyota claims the Prius c will have a rating of 35.4 km/liter or 2.8 liters/100 km (83.3 mpg US).

The Toyota Prius c will hold its North American introduction at the Detroit show in January. We expect the European debut to follow later in March at the Geneva auto salon.

*staring at it for about 10 minutes* uhhhhhh, ermmmm, uhhhh......... -_- nope.....nope nope nope. just doesn't do anyone any justice at all. my left eye has now melted and my mind is still scarred for life since the first one, but now the scar is growing larger. *sighhhhh* just when you think the concept seemed just a teeny tiny bit promising, the production model goes back to EPIC FAIL mode. sorry Toyota........it still sucks, and you owe me a left eye.

what? i never even said anything about the CR-Z, i don't know where you pulled out the CR-Z from what i said about the Prius, but ok, i know, the CR-Z is not the best of hybrid designs either. next time, let's try to stick to the main topic rather than bringing up a totally different subject just by judging the name of someone else.

So is this the same size as the Ford Fiesta/Renault Clio? It looks pretty good with the bodykit. At least Toyota didn't spend 12 months giving us preview after teaser after sneak peek.

Just do as I do and try your best not to pay attention to these cars. Excessive vomiting can damage the lining of your esophagus and can lead to long term effects. Maybe there will be a class action lawsuit in the near future. In the meantime, check for blood in your vomit or swelling in the back of your throat, which would indicate an esophageal tear. We car enthusiasts are with you in your concern.

It is decent looking but I could never buy a car that looks like this inside. The dash is an insult to the driver.
