Toyota Prius C Concept, with c representing a "city"
- centric vehicle, is a preview of a new member of the
hybrid family which Toyota will be introducing some time
The Prius C Concept is designed to appeal to a younger
audience and people "who want an eco-sensitive,
high-mileage, fun-to-drive Prius". The price
will also be lower than the current Prius.
The Toyota Prius C concept was designed at Toyota's European
design studios, ED2 based in the South-East of France.
The sharp angles of the concept, coupled with the futuristic
front end make it quite a stylish little chariot for the
eco-warrior. The headlights, which are mounted up near
the windscreen, give the Prius C Concept a distinctive
Inside the Prius C Concept is room for four adults, and
because there are four full-size doors, entry and exit
is easy. Thanks to glass roof panels, and expansive front,
rear and side windows, the interior is nice and bright.
The seats of the Toyota Prius C Concept are made up of
a solid and exposed frame which is then covered in a see-though
mesh material. Probably not the best option for cold climates,
but great on hot summer days.
Interestingly the interior of the Toyota Prius C Concept
also features an unusual design theme where the exterior
bodywork seems to intrude into the rear of the interior.
A diagonal line runs downward, starting at the base of
the b-pillar, which clearly shows the blue of the bodywork
inside the vehicle.
