Next-gen Prius to have two battery options, AWD

Toyota has said the next generation of the world's best-selling hybrid will offer a lithium ion battery and possibly an all-wheel-drive (AWD) option, Automotive News Europe has reported. The fourth-generation Prius will come with two battery choices, a low-cost nickel-metal hydride unit or a lithium ion pack, said senior managing officer in charge of powertrain development at Toyota, Koei Saga. The Prius also may get AWD in addition to its current front-wheel-drive layout. "I think we will possibly do it," said Saga.
