The 2016 Toyota Prius has already been revealed (albeit unofficially), sporting a striking and distinctive design that is also aero-efficient. Its design borrows cues from the Toyota Mirai FCV, and has a blackened C-Pillar for a floating roof impression.

Underneath the sculpted body, the 2016 Prius expected to get an updated version of the company’s Hybrid Synergy Drive system which, according to reports, also feature a revised 1.8-liter petrol engine with higher efficiency. The gasoline unit will be paired to two electric motors and a CVT gearbox. Reports suggest that the Prius will have a pure electric range of 30 miles (48.2 km).
