Toyota Netherlands sticks to the Prius

The Prius has been on Toyota’s Dutch price list for two decades and the hybrid car will remain there for the time being. It is different in other countries, where they say goodbye to the mother of hybrids.

For example, Toyota Australia stopped supplying the Prius. Mounted? Sales figures have dropped dramatically and for the Australian importer, offering the hybrid car no longer justifies the costs of making the Prius available. And for the importer to unplug the product line. before-photo-pc-gr-sport-prius-phv-1

Electric Prius on the way

In the Netherlands, the price list of the Prius indicates “limited availability”. Is this the beginning of the end? Yes and no. Yes, because the end of the current Prius is in sight. The importer only supplies the five-door sedan on special order. No, because a successor is on the way. When this new generation will appear, Toyota does not indicate it yet. It is also not known what this model will look like. It is certain that the next Prius will also have an all-electric powertrain. It’s unclear whether it will come alongside a hybrid and a plug-in hybrid (the two powertrains of the existing model). The Japanese are discreet about future models.

Hybrid Generation Gap: New Toyota Prius vs. First Generation Prius

According to Toyota, a hybrid, a plug-in hybrid and an electric vehicle can coexist perfectly, as the refreshed C-HR comes with three different powertrains. Now this crossover is on the same lower section as the current Prius. If Toyota continues to use the TNGA platform, the next Prius will be suitable for multiple power plants. If the Prius switches to the architecture of the BZ4X, it will be a purely electric model. toyota-prius-02

Additional service

Toyota introduced the Prius at the Tokyo Motor Show in 1997. The model was the first to hit the Japanese market. Three years later, sedan delivery began in Europe. From the second generation, the model became a sedan, while a minivan type station wagon was also added later. Initially, there was little interest in the Toyota hybrid in the Netherlands. It wasn’t until the tax breaks were introduced that dealers were able to distribute the Prius. After adjustments to tax rules, demand fell again. Toyota Prius 2019 Facelift 2

More than six million units

The first Prius appeared in 1997. Its successor arrived in 2003. The third edition arrived in 2009. The current one dates from 2016. The product line has now sold more than six million copies. The first million took about eleven years to mark, but the second million was made in just over two years. In September 2010, the copy in question left the factory. At that time, Toyota was already manufacturing the hybrid car in several places around the world. The number three million was born in June 2013, four years later the number four million appeared. Over six million units of the Prius have now been sold.
