Toyota Prius (NHW10/NHW11). 1997–2003 (prod. n/a). 4-door saloon. F/F, 1497 cm³ (I4 DOHC). Hybrid electric–petrol car that popularized the concept and was first mass-produced vehicle of this type. Basic 1·5-litre petrol engine combined with electric drivetrain: car switches between the two depending on power needed (the latter usually for urban motoring). Exports to US with 2000 NHW11 model, with mid-term improvements. Odd styling, apeing a squared-off Corolla 30. A favourite of environmentalists and Hollywood celebrities.
