2016 Prius will offer AWD and two battery options

Reported by AutoEvolution, Toyota will provide an all wheel driver (AWD) system and two options as an extra in 2016. Customers can choose either current nickel-metal hybrid (Ni-Mh) or all new lithium-ion (Li-on) which has a better power density which will have a better range for the vehicle.

The next generation Prius will be developed on a modular  platform known as Toyota New Global Achitecture (TNGA) which will cut the weight up to 20%. Their aim is to improve Prius’s fuel efficiency over 55mpg or 10% compare to the current model.
