Report: Next Toyota Prius to have “revolutionary” design

The Toyota Prius has been really nothing more than an affordable hybridized bubble on wheels from a design standpoint. And that’s because the shape of the Prius has allowed it to have one of the lowest drag coefficients of any car in production today.

Though because the overall shape has been virtually the same since the second generation model, word in the pipeline is that Toyota will be showcasing a “revolutionary” new design on the next generation model.

Other than the use of more powerful and lighter and more technically advanced lithium-ion batteries versus the traditional nickel metal hydride batteries, the Prius will beneft from a new internal combustion engine as well.

More importantly, the new Prius will ride on Toyota’s New Global Architecture, which is their step in creating a more worldly platform to streamline production, similarly to other manufacturers.

The Prius is set to be revealed next year as a 2015 model.
