Not only the new Prius is the pioneering model for big innovations in technology and performance, it is also able to tow a trailer, for the first time in its 19-year history. Being able to tow hook and pull a trailer or light caravan adds another dimension to the model’s practicality and extends its appeal to a wider range of customers.
The hybrid system’s main electric motor-generator now includes heat management measures that gives the model the ability to tow a trailer. The car has a maximum towing capacity of 725kg for both braked and unbraked trailers.
Toyota is offering a range of towing hitches and wiring systems that customers can equip their model with and they are designed to be simple and easy to operate, with clear red and green indicators to shown when a secure connection has been made. When the towing arm isn’t in use, it can be unclipped and stored in a dedicated bag in the boot of the car. Most of the connecting hardware is hidden behind the lower lip of the rear bumper, so the clean lines of the rear of the car are preserved.
