2024 Toyota Prius: new teaser…
It is now official, the all-new 2024 Toyota Prius will be at the Los Angeles Auto show next week.
I am actually very excited to see it in person on Wednesday. Although the car will actually be unveiled the day before on the 16th.
Quite amazingly, we just saw the first spy shots of this car only a few weeks ago, and it’s almost already here. Unlike some cars from other manufacturers like Hyundai or Kia. (It seems we’ve now seen spy shots of the next Kona for many months.)
No info on the car yet. At least we’ll see the regular hybrid at the show. While the PHEV could be shown early next year. There’s also a weird rumor of a hybrid Hydrogen version in the works. Also rumors of an over 60MPG rating and up to 60 miles of electric range for the PHEV.
I think the PHEV would have no problem reaching at least 50 miles since the much less aerodynamic and much heavier RAV-5 Prime is already rated at 42 miles of electric-only range.
This is actually quite exciting. From what we’ve already seen the car looks great.

I’ve got to admit, that silhouette and LED light profile has me excited. 60/60 would be phenomenal. To me, hybrid tech really is what all companies should be focusing on until solid state batteries and proper infrastructure are closer to a reality. Thanks for keeping us up to date, Vince!
Looks like a next generation Volt to me! Chevy was ahead of its time.
The day before is the 15th. Wednesday is the 16th.
You are correct. I will see the car on Thursday the 17th.(Press day) Although it’s being introduced on the 16th.
I honestly can’t wait to see the new Prius, and I have never said that about any of it’s predecessors.
I love that profile. Excited to see what they do with this. And I’m not even a Toyota fan.
