Toyota Prius coupe
Toyota is well on the way to making its entire line up hybrid powered by 2020 and this hybrid sports coupe is set to compete directly with Honda’s new CR-Z. The new Toyota hybrid coupe will be based on the Prius platform which apparently will have its length reduced by 100mm. This of course means that the 1.8L 2ZR-FXE engine and Hybrid Synergy Drive from the Prius will be carried over too, only the 2ZR-FXE and hybrid system will be tuned to provide 136PS which is 37PS over standard. This increase in power will obviously affect fuel consumption, with the hybrid sports coupe returning 35.0km/L as opposed to the Prius’s 38.0km/L for the lightest L-grade version. The consumption figures are only speculation but it’s safe to say that this will be one very economical sports car.

Going head to head with the Honda CR-Z means the new Toyota will of course be a 2-door, 2+2 seat configuration coupe. Sounds a lot like the highly anticipated “086A” compact FR sports car doesn’t it?


Hopefully, the real thing looks as good as the rendering.

the rendering looks like a smaller genesis coupe, and 136 ps is not enough power....thats less than 130 hp. its torque will be its only saving grace; it's not going to be lighter than even a celica

The rendering basically copies the FT-HS styling.

looks pretty good, keep in mind its being badged a prius. The market for a prius isnt exactly power hungry people. I love the idea of getting the fuel economy of a prius but persoanlly im not a fan of sedans, and im sure im not the only one. Making a prius coupe is a damn good idea.

Yes, it's gonna be the Prius, Hachiroku, Celica, Subayota all rolled into one. :chuckles:

Maybe they should just call it Sashimi.
