About Toyota Prius
The Toyota Prius is a vehicle manufactured by Toyota. In 2007, the Prius was named one of the cleanest cars sold in the U.S. in terms of tailpipe emissions by the Environmental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board. The 2018 Toyota Prius Eco was the second most efficient gasoline-free vehicle offered in the U.S. this year, behind only the Hyundai Ioniq Blue hybrid. The Toyota Prius was launched in Japan in 1997 and is available at all four Toyota dealerships in the country, making it the first mass-produced hybrid vehicle. It was introduced globally in 2000. Toyota sells the Prius in more than 90 markets, the largest being Japan and the United States.
The second generation of the plug-in variant, the Toyota Prius Prime, was released in the U.S. in November 2016. In February 2011, Toyota USA asked the public to decide on what the most proper plural form of Toyota Prius should be, with choices including Prien, Prii, Prium, Prius, or Priuses. The company announced on February 20 that "Prii" was the most popular choice. And the new official plural designation in the U.S. In 1995, Toyota debuted a hybrid concept car at the Tokyo Motor Show, with testing a year later. The first Prius, model NHW10, went on sale on December 10, 1997. The first-generation Toyota Prius was available only in Japan, though it has been imported privately to at least the United States. Production commenced in December 1997 at the Takaoka plant in Toyota, Aichi, ending in February 2000 after cumulative production of 37,425 vehicles.

The Prius is sold between the smaller Corolla and the larger Camry. Production of the NHW11 began in May 2000 at the Motomachi plant in the same area. And it continued until the cessation of XW10 production in June 2003, when 33,411 NHW11s were produced. The Prius is the second hybrid vehicle in the U.S. market after the two-seater Honda Insight. There are three versions of the Prius: Standard, Base, and Touring. The second-generation Prius is more environmentally friendly than the previous model.
