AutomotiveNews reports that Toyota is delaying the next generation Prius’ launch back to December 2015. Originally, the model was scheduled to launch in the spring of next year, but due to a desire to squeeze as much fuel economy as possible out of the new model, the new Prius is said to be under a complete evaluation.

The new Prius is expected to improve upon its current fuel economy figures by at least ten percent and is code-named the 690A model. It will be built on Toyota’s New Global Architecture and will sport a revolutionary design and a more comfortable cabin.
A lower center of gravity is also expected with an included 20% decrease in weight. A new plug-in variant should follow in October of 2016.
