Toyota chooses Toyo tires for hybrid MPV

ERJ staff report (BC)

Osaka, Japan – Proxes R35A tires in size 215/50 R17 91V have been selected by Toyota for original equipment fitting on its Prius+ MPV, the first full hybrid seven-seater in Europe.

Toyo claims that the tires help the Prius+ to offer the lowest emissions of any seven-seater on the market, at less than 100g/km CO2.

Designing the seven-seat configuration of the Prius+ was helped by adopting lithium-ion batteries, which are more compact than conventional batteries for energy storage in hybrid vehicles.
