Next-gen Prius will be turbocharged, get 100+ MPG, and maybe plug-in
First, one prototype Prius being tested has a 1.8-litre turbo engine with an upgraded hybrid system with new lithium ion batteries that will recharge quicker and hold more power longer. Autoexpress is also reporting that Toyota might make the Prius with a plug-in power system, similar to what independent groups like the Amberjac Projects group have added to current Prius models.
