The 2010 Toyota Prius includes a new revised Hybrid Synergy Drive system which vows to be one of the top electric cars. The electric vehicle delivers improved fuel economy.
Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc will premiere its new 2010 Prius Hybrid electric car at the upcoming 2009 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The vehicle offers a revised Hybrid Synergy Drive system and promises to deliver improved fuel economy.
“As the world’s leading hybrid vehicle, the Toyota Prius offers anything but an ordinary driving experience,” Toyota said in a statement on its Web site.
Hybrid electric cars run quiet, at least most of them do. What’s unique about the Primus is that drivers will experience nothing more than a whisper when starting the new Hybrid ignition system.
“You’ll start the car to hear just a whisper – and be taken aback to discover that despite its apparent meekness, the Toyota Prius pulls off like a dream and powerfully overtakes its competitors,” Toyota said.
One of the things striking about the vehicle are the many features it has. It has no ignition key and uses Prius’ Smart Key System. Drivers start the car by hitting a power button while pressing on the brake pedal.
“The Toyota Prius hybrid car does not have a traditional ignition and key, but instead features an advanced keyless start-up,” The car maker said.
Electric cars are the goal for every auto maker and the race is on to see who can build the better vehicle. Next year will be filled with battery powered cars and low fuel capacity. General Motors, Ford, Nissan and Chrysler have already developed similar Hybrid vehicles to display next month.
