New pictures of the 2016 Prius without camouflage leak ahead of Sept 8th debut


Two pictures of the 2016 Toyota Prius leaked this weekend on the Malaysia Prius Club forum. The pictures appear to have been shot inside the cargo hold of a plane.

Fortunately and for the first time, the cars have no apparent camouflage on them, giving us a very good look at Toyota’s next generation Prius.

If the front-end looks familiar to you, it’s because of its apparent resemblance to the Mirai’s, Toyota’s fuel cell vehicle which went on limited sale in California earlier this year.

Here’s the second picture:


The Prius Plug-In Hybrid is expected to have an electric range of 30-35 miles before the gas-powered motor takes over. A welcomed ~300% improvement over the previous generation.
