Toyota Prius Creating Waves

The people of Oman have greeted the latest model of the hybrid powered Toyota Prius with ampleenthusiasm & interest, "The Prius is likely to change perceptions about environmentally friendly vehicles while adding a new look to the city streets," says the Toyota spokesperson.

The latest Prius model debuted in February 2016 and immediately garnered a fan following eager to know of its advanced Toyota Hybrid System. This unique system combines a gasoline engine and electric motor to create an impressive driving experience, while being tremendously eco-friendly.

The performance is truly impressive and that is because the Prius system generates ample torque to deliver an exhilarating acceleration through its 1.8-litre engine.

The design of the Prius is not the only thing turning heads. The latest model was developed to represent the first wave of Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA)—the company's latest auto- making innovation that makes a fresh start by putting the joy of driving above all else.

These are the chief reasons that within a short time, the Prius has gained a large number of admirers. According to an enthusiast who took a test drive, "Just imagine pressing the accelerator and silently gaining speed with just the motor. Before you know it, the engine and motor are working together in a way that is silky smooth. The steering wheel responds with precision in the hands as the Prius goes exactly where you want it to go, rounding the turns with delightful handling accuracy!"

The prototype for the Prius was unveiled in September 2015 in Las Vegas. Murmurs of wonder and amazement at its revolutionary new design could be heard bubbling through the media crowds that gathered to see it suspended from wires as it literally descended onto the stage.

Media reports also highlighted the dramatic makeover, which resulted in an edgy, emotional styling…one that completely overturns people's established notions.

Toyota's commitment to fashion the cutting-edge design came from none other than the pioneering hybrid vehicle itself. In fact, the name Prius means, "To go before," and it is in the DNA of the Prius to constantly push the limits of the human imagination.

It is no surprise that the hybrid technology in the Prius delivers outstanding environmental performance, but the 'Beautiful Hybrid' development concept takes it to the next level in terms of design and driving performance as well—drawing praise from around the globe.

The development team wanted to give the world fresh value built on cutting-edge hybrid technology, with a design that speaks to the heart, fun-to-drive handling, and a socially responsible presence. A beautiful car for a more beautiful earth—the Prius once again ushers us into the future.

In the words of the spokesperson, "We welcome one and all to experience the vehicle for them…it is your turn to join in. You are welcome to visit and see a Prius up close, test drive it, experience its true value. The car that has charmed people all over the world is sure to capture your heart, too."

In Oman, the nationwide parts and service network of Saud Bahwan Automotive supports Toyota's outstanding product quality. No wonder then that today, Toyota is one of the most trusted and well-known brands.
