Meanwhile, the compact car will be available in the third generation Toyota Prius Toyota Prius II and PHD since 2009. The biggest changes compared to the previous two generations, known together as the Toyota Prius, I have been especially made to the design, but also in technology. Visible is the new Prius, especially on the longer and upswept headlights. Regarding the engine in the Toyota Prius 1.8 it is thanks to the electric motor to a large emission reduction and to lower fuel consumption. The Toyota Prius 1.8 hybrid engine with 136 PS consumes an average of less than four liters of Super per 100 kilometers, which is a true top value for this model class. The 500-volt electric motor in a Toyota Prius car is very different from the electric motors from other manufacturers because it draws its power directly from the generator of the gasoline engine and not from the outlet. The disadvantage is the very small road that you alone can remove the electric motor, with a speed of 45 km / h in just 1.5 kilometers them. This could be eradicated from the end of 2009 with the plug-in Toyota Prius variant as PHD, of up to 100 km / h achieved in pure electric mode and can drive about 20 kilometers purely by electricity.

In the upscale version Toyota Prius Executive, the driver can also at nine speakers, enjoy a six-disc CD changer and a DVD navigation system with color touchscreen, TMC and Bluetooth hands-free. At the IAA 2011, a car was available with the third generation of the hybrid vehicle under the label Toyota Prius PHEV, which emits only 2.2 liters per 100 kilometers, and just 49 g / km of CO ² in the combined. In parallel, the Prius was introduced as Van + who is looking as a seven-seater to compete with VW Touran and Opel Zafira Tourer. For model year 2012, the hybrid car has been well maintained model: In addition to a new exterior design markanterem struts are integrated into the bodywork, which should improve the rigidity and thus the location of the road Toyota Prius cars. Sealing and insulating elements to minimize the noise level in the interior considerably. Furthermore, the interior and the instrumentation of the hybrids was revised and visually refreshed.
