The world finally found the solution of rising fuel prices when world ‘s largest car maker Toyota Motor has launched new 2012 Aqua Hybrid (2013 Prius C) in Japan in December 2011 at a price of ¥1.69 million (US$21,700) and US market starting price $18,950 and Canada starting price CAD 20,950.
2012 Aqua Hybrid launched in US and Canada market as 2013 Prius C. Currently it’s available in Japan, US and Canada but by April 1, 2012, Aqua will be launched in New Zealand and Australia starting at a price of NZ$30,990 (US$25,400).
This five -door hatchback is powered by a 1.5-liter DOHC 16–valve with VVT-i engine promising you fuel economy 40km/l and emission certification is SULEV.
2012 Toyota Aqua Hybrid/2013 Prius C is the biggest competitor of Chevrolet Volt because new Aqua is world’s cheapest, smallest and most fuel efficient hybrid car. Great thing abut Aqua, it’s now the fastest selling car because Toyota has sold 13,485 units of Aqua in January 2012 and notched up 120,000 booking in one month achieved the 1 years sales target in one month. You know new Aqua’s pace of booking, For 17 hours a day, in every 75 seconds, one car rolls out of the assembly line. Isn’t great?
Toyota which dominates the hybrid field, has said it would launch about 10 more gasoline-electric models by 2015 and offer a fuel-sipping option across its entire line-up by around 2020.
At last I would like to say that new 2012 Aqua Hybrid or 2013 Prius C is the best hybrid car in affordable price and it’s sales figure telling the story of it’s success. What you think? Please be open to give your view.
