Toyota unveiled its most current technology Aygo X Prologue this week. To say this automobile is quirky and warm and sexy would not be underselling it.
The Aygo is at this time bought in Europe as a hatchback “city auto.” Whilst it is great for the smaller vehicle life style abroad, a number of vital capabilities make me marvel if it could perform in The united states too.

Coming in at about 2,200 kilos, present Toyota Aygo utilizes a 1.-liter 3-cylinder motor that provides 72 horsepower and 69 lb.-ft. torque. Motorists can opt for from computerized or manual transmission.
Toyota Aygo is capable of reaching about 99 miles for every hour.
Right here is the kicker, however. Homeowners can accomplish all-around 61 miles per gallon. In a time wherever men and women are seeing gas costs intently, perhaps something alongside the lines of the new Toyota Aygo would be welcomed.
Aygo X Prologue
The new thought automobile unveiled by Toyota sparks of freshness, mischievousness and enjoyment. I marvel if this would attraction to a very similar market as C-HR or Yaris.
Just acquire the identify offered to this daring and in-your-face Aygo X Prologue, “Sparkling Chilli Crimson.” Spicy. Very spicy.

Make it a Toyota hybrid and think about how considerably that all-critical mpg score would climb. Probably as higher as RAV4 Primary at 94MPGe?
United States feasibility
I really feel that on its personal, a model like Aygo X Prologue could possibly battle in this place. Largely due to the fact potential proprietors generally look for out much larger cars. But, with a small tweaking it could get the job done.
A motor vehicle start like this would drop in line with latest Toyota initiative to make additional hybrid and choice fuel automobiles within the up coming numerous many years. Toyota will be generating extra EV, BEV, PHEV, EV, hydrogen gas-mobile and common hybrids than ever before.
Lately Toyota declared the imminent launch of one new plug-in hybrid electric automobile (PHEV) and two new battery electric powered cars (BEV). These will be formally disclosed and released in 2021, more than very likely hitting United States markets with a 2022 design yr badge.
I speculated in prior Torque Information tales that a person of these new PHEV or BEV Toyota designs could be a Tundra, a Lexus, or even something completely new to us.
