It has been about 15 years since Toyota launched the Prius for the first time. At that time, the Prius is a hybrid car at the edge of revolution. Toyota then followed up with a parade of hybrid cars, expanding the use of fuel-saving technologies for the Lexus lineup and strengthen the Prius brand.
Now, with nearly every car manufacturer took the hybrid car market, Toyota is planning a radical look for the next-generation Prius.
“Some consumers want to see major changes in the latest Prius. As architects we make the same pattern in the two previous generation,” said Chris Hostetter, group vice president of Strategic Planning of Toyota Motor Sales USA.

Car lights is an important component in the vehicle so that if you have problems with your headlights should fix it immediately, many ways you can do to fix it. The most important thing is to buy the best prius hid bulbs then you can install it yourself or ask for help to install a car mechanic.
This year, the Prius can achieve the greatest achievement of global sales record with most suppliers from California and Japan. Even since yesterday increased its revenue exceeded the target due to substantial demand of the market in both countries, although there was a slight decrease in China.
According to the data analyst, until March 2013 profits from sales of the Prius stands at 780 billion yen, or about Rp 93 trillion. This figure is the highest achievement in the last 5 years and exceeded the target of 760 billion yen / Rp 91 trillion.
While not knowing the detailed specification of the whole body twin-turbo Cobra Jet, but the race car uses a twin-turbo and the kitchen was redone by a 5.0-liter V-8, predicted that the performance of the engine becomes more efficient in generating power.
2013 Cobra Jet Mustang supercharger uses two – but the supercharger needs 100 horsepower to turn the blower only 2.9-liter engine. That is considered automotive enthusiasts no power is lost for a car equipped supercharger.
Manufacturing Ford must have known that since ancient times, so the innovations made in the hope of racing cars produced not experience lag.
Borg-Warner Turbo based on the same design and can be found in the Focus ST cars, with low friction ball bearings deliver a rotary engine can spin up to 150,000 rpm in a short time. It certainly will further accelerate the speed of maximum acceleration and speed, the car is responsive!
Twin-turbo project on the Cobra Jet is not finished, but his appearance at the SEMA show car will soon enter tough consumer garage.
Nissan Motor Company (NMC), announced that they have started selling the 2013 GT-R officially, but while this is only for Japan. As for the other countries beginning in January 2013.
Each region, according to Kazutoshi Mizuno, Chief Vehicle Engineer and Chief Product Specialist NMC who briefed Sports Land Sugo circuit in Sendai, Japan, engine power output is different.
“We made 3 power settings with 560, 550 and 540 hp. Specifications remain the same machine, but the machine settings adjusted octane fuel available,” Mizuno Says. GT-R is still relying VR38DETT engine, 3.8-liter V6 twin turbo.
Highest power is provided to the state or territory that had gasoline with octane rating of 100. While each of the other 98 and 96. “This is done so that the engine produces maximum power and have long endurance,” the statement indirectly informed that Indonesia will get a small portion of the power station in Indonesia for highest octane 95, although there is now racing the first to have the octane rating of 100 , only available in Jakarta and in certain outlets.
The changes to the 2013 version this time is in the engine and suspension.
– The addition of high-injector that can control the output precision fuel injection so as to improve engine response and acceleration in the middle rounds at high rpm.
– Valve technology developed specifically been added to the turbo bypass, it can withstand a drastic reduction in turbo pressure, which it helps to maintain acceleration at high rpm.
– Adding insulation to the oil pan, it aims to stabilize the oil pressure and reduce rotational friction in the oil pan, especially when you’re speeding.
– Chassis for stability more steady. Materials for suspension replacement, bushing-bushing using stronger material and not less interesting, this car is also more shallow to obtain an even lower center of gravity, thus making the car more agile maneuver.
– Camber bolts installed on the front suspension, to improve the accuracy of camber, and the ease of setting alignment.
– Reinfocement been conducted at two points in the dashboard panel to make the car more rigid.
– Torque from the drives haft to the hub bearing has been improved to make it more reliable when the car driven badly.
