Shropshire, UK October 4th 2012 – The Toyota Prius continues to increase in popularity as the hybrid engine not only offers reduced fuel economy but has received very positive reviews for its handling and performance figures. Reliability has also helped cement the range as one of the most popular and the one that attracts the greatest number of people to upgrade to the latest models. This popularity has, in turn, helped Toyota to become the most valuable car brand in the world, according to statistics revealed by Interbrand, the same company which listed the Japanese manufacturer as being the world’s greenest brand earlier this year.
The most notable feature of the Prius is its hybrid engine. This combines a 1.8litre petrol engine with an electric motor. The car seamlessly shifts between the two drive methods in order to greatly reduce the amount of petrol that is consumed. The end result is a combined fuel economy of nearly 75mpg and a tank of petrol that will cover more than 700 miles under the right driving conditions.
The Prius is certainly not in its infancy any longer and the most recent design has won plaudits for its modern, and even futuristic styling. It is considered to be a good looking, green hybrid vehicle. Performance from the engine has been surprising too, beating off competition from other 1.8litre engines as it travels from 0-62mph in just over 10 seconds.
