Toyota Prius Malaysia

UMW Toyota Malaysia has brought in the Toyota Prius. Only showing to public at this Friday (August 7th) in selected showrooms, we manage to find out that only Subang Jaya showroom and Cheras Toyota Showroom will have the Toyota Prius. UMW Toyota website has indicated the car is selling for about RM175,000 . Powered by a 1.8 litre petrol engine and mated with a Ni-MH battery/motor powertrain, along with a CVT transmission – as a result, toyota claims that its power of acceleration is equivalent to a Camry 2.4. This is the first version of Prius we get in Malaysia, true fact is – this is the 3rd generation of Prius from Toyota.
