Full Hybrid Powertrain a new Lithium-ion Battery

The Toyota full hybrid system a 1.8 litre VVT-i petrol a powerful electric motor, a a high performance lithium-ion a power control unit, and a split device.

The HSD system power from both the engine and electric motor in as well as alone, maximising the of both units to achieve the balance of driving performance and efficiency.

During deceleration and braking, the electric motor as a high-output generator to effect braking. Normally wasted as kinetic energy is recovered as energy for storage in the high battery.

The system’s seamless, electric continuously variable is controlled by Shift-by-Wire technology, an electronic shift lever

As in the standard Prius, the Prius+ three ‘on-demand’ drive to increase the capabilities of the full powertrain, including a full EV mode which allows for running on electric motor alone, resulting in zero consumption and CO2, NOx and PM emissions.

High Output Lithium-ion

The Toyota Prius+’s lithium-ion replaces nickel-metal hydride within a non-plug-in Toyota hybrid for the first time. within the vehicle centre between the front seats, the new is significantly lighter and more than that of the Prius.

A new structure design equips the battery with just 56 arranged in a vertically double structure. This occupies less volume than a battery and, at 34 kg, is 8 kg lighter.

these reductions in both and weight, the Prius+ battery has the rated voltage of 202 V, and has an identical output.

1.8 Litre Atkinson Engine with Improved Heat Recirculation

The lightweight, compact, 4-cylinder 1,798 cc cycle petrol engine 98 DIN hp/73 kW at 5,200 rpm and 142 Nm of torque at rpm. Combined with a Exhaust Gas Recirculation system, the of the Atkinson cycle offers gains in fuel efficiency and the of emissions.

Because the intake close late in an Atkinson engine, compression is delayed. creates a high expansion for less compression, reducing and exhaust energy losses and combustion energy to engine more effectively. As a result, the temperature is lower than of conventional engines. Cooled Gas Recirculation reintroduces cooled gas into the intake system, reducing engine operating

Together, these technologies situations when the cooling of ‘fuel enrichment’ is necessary to the catalytic converter from damage, thereby improving economy and lowering emissions.

cold weather fuel and cabin comfort, an engine management system combines an Exhaust Heat Recirculation with an electric water To reduce mechanical losses, an system replaces the conventional pump drive belt. As a the coolant flow rate can be with greater precision, to greater fuel efficiency.

Via a built into the exhaust the revised Exhaust Heat system redirects exhaust to heat up the engine coolant at up.

The new system is 33% lighter and 27% more than that of the standard engine. Specifically, a greater of heat can now pass from the to the coolant in the heat exchange This significantly reduces warm up times, particularly in weather. It allows a more delivery of effective cabin and improves hybrid system and fuel economy.

Battery power is constantly managed via an engine generator to obviate any requirement to the system from an external

Three ‘On-Demand’ Driving — A Unique Eco Driving

Supplementing the NORMAL drive of the new Prius+’s seamless, E-CVT continuously variable transmission, alternative, ‘on-demand’ drive -EV, ECO and POWER- may be selected to increase driving efficiency, and fuel economy.

These modes also incorporate Eco driving support for those who to adopt more environmentally-friendly techniques.

From start the NORMAL drive mode the new Toyota Prius+ automatically in EV mode, driving under motor power alone to instant power and an extraordinarily quiet ride with NVH. This driving is unique to full hybrid and is not available to drivers of mild vehicles.

In NORMAL mode, the hybrid system can operate on motor power alone at speeds up to 70 km/h, the petrol smoothly starting in higher ranges when its output is

The driver may also select EV manually. Though the petrol will still start if the judges that its output is this switchable EV mode for significantly greater throttle without engine start up. with vehicle range by battery charge, the EV drive allows for urban driving minimal noise and zero NOx and PM emissions as often as possible.

Its hybrid powertrain helps deliver significant levels of operation. The powertrain is optimised to in the most efficient mode, the need for the petrol engine as as possible.

Toyota’s own evaluations this potential. Data several urban and extra trips show that the effect of the full hybrid leads to high proportions of operation, averaging up to 61% of journey and 50% of total distance travelled.

the use of only light to medium inputs keeps the petrol switched off throughout its operation, the EV mode contributes to a significant in the new Prius+’s overall fuel

In ECO mode, throttle response to accelerator pedal inputs is and air-conditioning control optimised for fuel economy. Depending on conditions, the ECO mode can help achieve around a 10% reduction in consumption.

A POWER mode modifies the response of the Toyota to throttle inputs, here power to improve acceleration and driving pleasure. The POWER provides a 25% higher throttle to accelerator pedal input.
