2012 Toyota G's Prius

Set among the many debuts Toyota has planned for the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show is the G’s Prius, a sportier and far more aggressive take on the Japanese automaker’s resident hybrid car.

Toyota has yet to reveal the full specs regarding the car, but it certainly looks like this model is an evolution of the Prius G Sports Concept that the company unveiled at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show.

Of the details we do have of the G’s Prius, we can tell you that the model has a White Pearl Crystal Shine exterior finish with red and black decorated stripes running along both sides of the car. One thing we’re thankful of, as far as the G’s Prius is concerned, is that Toyota opted for a more traditional look as opposed to the oddly-designed, rear-tire covered Prius G Concept. The interior of the G’s Prius also got a few styling tweaks in the form of a revised steering wheel, Recaro sport seats dressed in black leather with matching red stitching, a new information display, and aluminum pedals.

Under its hood, the G’s Prius will come with the same power train as that of a standard Prius so expect a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine mated to an Electronic Continuously Variable transmission. This setup produces 99 horsepower and 105 lb/ft of torque matched to an electric motor that produces 82 horsepower.

I really like the white pearl finish paired with red and black stripes. It’s simple yet elegant, and the interiors are excellent.

Toyota G’s Prius looks so strong and bold on its platform. I love the red lining on its side and on its wheels, it adds more appeal to the car. The grille and the headlights suited this model well. However, I hate the fact that it is an electric car.

A great car with excellent and user-friendly controls. This car runs smoothly and accelerates on the highway with ease. It looks stunning with the color and design.

This prius looks so strong on its exterior design, most specially with that red lining and hot wheels. I wonder how much this hybrid car cost? will they produce another color of it?

Yeah! It is really bad! smiley Anyway, I’m still hoping that it would also be available on a gasoline motor. Moreover, I must say that I’m as well impressed on its exclusivity.

Too bad it is a hybrid vehicle! Anyway, I really wonder if they truly have a plan to put on the market next year these electric cars? Well, I wish that I would have a chance to try driving this kind of vehicle.

Toyota should only give an extra focused on how they could boost more the engine of their cars because I noticed that they already improve a lot on their design and platform, and this one is absolutely very admiring.

Wow! A new look for Prius vehicle, great! Well, I must say that it looks more so awesome and elegant than on its previous looks. However, just like them I’m not also satisfied on its engine.

Nice wheels and front design! smiley its grille and headlight are really oozing with angst! I also love the racing stripes on its side rim, looks cool with that. Anyway, I don’t like the fact that it is a hybrid car.
