Previously, it was expected that Toyota will introduce the next-generation Prius in 2022.

Later, there were doubts about this plan, because the manufacturer has actively taken up development of its own electric cars, and therefore could decide not to spend money on development of new hybrids (especially taking into account the fact that in Europe, for example, they plan to further introduce a ban on the production of new cars with internal combustion engines).

However, plans to release the Prius of the fifth generation in 2022 is confirmed by British edition Autocar with reference to Andrea Carlucci, vice-president of Toyota Europe.

According to him, the Prius has been an icon for Toyota for many years, moreover, the model was a pioneer in the field of electrification.

He added that he could not disclose details, but hinted that the new generation is worth waiting for, with the company intending to make sure the Prius will still be a segment leader in terms of technology used.

According to the company, Toyota will focus more on electric cars in Europe (there are plans to accelerate development), but on a global scale, the brand’s «center of gravity» is still shaped around hybrids.
