The Toyota Prius c (c stands for "city"), named the Toyota Aqua ("aqua" is Latin for water) in Japan, is a full hybrid gasoline-electric subcompact hatchback manufactured and marketed by Toyota Motor Corporation. The Prius c is the third member of the Prius family, and combines the features of a Yaris-sized car with a hybrid powertrain. The Prius c is priced lower than the conventional Prius and has a higher fuel economy in city driving under United States Environmental Protection Agency test cycles.[4][5] The Prius c was ranked by the EPA as the 2012 most fuel efficient compact car when plug-in electric vehicles are excluded.[6][7]

The production version of the Aqua was unveiled in the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show. The production Prius c was introduced in the U.S. at the January 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.[8] The Aqua was launched in Japan in December 2011 at a price of ¥1.69 million (US$21,700).[9] Sales in several Asian markets began in January 2012.[10][11] The Prius c was released in the U.S. and Canada in March 2012.[12][13] Sales in Australia and New Zealand began in April 2012.[14][15]

The Aqua is considered the most successful nameplate launch in Japan in the last 20 years.[16] As of April 2016, the Aqua/Prius c is the second most sold hybrid of Toyota Motor Corporation after the regular Prius, with 1,249,100 units sold worldwide, and Japan is the market leader with 1,041,200 units sold.[17] For three consecutive years, 2013 through 2015, the Aqua was the top selling new car in Japan.[18][19]

Interior 2012-14
Hybrid Synergy Drive of Toyota Aqua (Prius c)
Generation 3 (chainless) Hybrid Synergy Drive. The ICE-MG1 Power Split Device/MG2 Motor Speed Reduction Device HSD is shown in a sectioned and highlighted view. The MG2 ratio is 2.5:1 rather than 1:1 as on earlier HSDs, thereby allowing the physical size of the MG2 to be reduced to the cross-section of the MG1.

Built on an enhanced and streamlined Yaris-inspired platform, the Prius c features Toyota's Generation 3 Hybrid Synergy Drive with a 1.5-liter DOHC four-cylinder, 16–valve with VVT-i gasoline engine, the same engine model and displacement as on the earliest Priuses, but now "beltless", with all accessory drives replaced by electric motors which operate whether the engine is running or not.[citation needed]

Unlike earlier Prius HSDs, the Prius c incorporates separate planetary gear reduction paths for the ICE/MG1 (internal combustion engine/motor-generator one, this path familiarly referred to as the "power split device", with the MG1 doing double duty as the ICE starter and a battery charging alternator; HV to charge the HV battery, HV through a dc-dc converter to charge the LV battery), and the MG2 (motor-generator two, this path newly referred to as the "motor speed reduction device", with the MG2 doing double duty as the traction (propulsion) motor and the HV battery regenerative charging alternator), thereby allowing higher electric-only performance (this is limited mainly by the MG1-to-final-drive ratio, and, of course, the capacity of the MG1), and higher hybrid performance (this is limited mainly by the MG2-to-final-drive ratio, and, of course, the capacity of the MG2), with the gear ratios, hence the rotational speeds of the MG1 and MG2, now better matched to their respective mission functions, in a significantly smaller, lighter weight package. The chain drive found in the Gen 1 and Gen 2 HSDs is also eliminated, replaced by helical gears in the Gen 3 HSD. The Prius v and Prius Plug-in share this basic Gen 3 design (P410 transaxle, for both of these), but not its specific implementation, and which is unique to the Prius c and its lower maximum weight, and lower HSD net horsepower (P510 transaxle, for Prius c, North America; Prius Aqua, Japan; and Yaris Hybrid, Europe).[citation needed]

The hybrid system includes a new high-voltage battery and inverter, and a smaller auxiliary 12 volt battery. Both batteries are housed underneath the rear passenger bench seat, and are easily accessible to service personnel, yet are protected from possible collision damage by a welded tubular steel cage which also acts as support for the rear seat. Being housed underneath the passenger seat, the large high voltage traction battery does not impact the trunk space, unlike the traction battery on earlier Priuses. This location for the traction battery also significantly lowers the center of gravity of the Prius c, and improves road handling.[citation needed]

The hybrid powertrain weighs around 40 kg (88 lb) less than that of the standard Prius Liftback.[5][22] The 1NZ-FXE engine[23] produces 54 kW (73 hp) and the HSD motor is rated at 45 kW (60 hp). Total output is rated at 74 kW (99 hp).[24]

The body of the Prius c is smaller than the traditional Prius, with a wheelbase of 2,550 mm (100.4 in) it is 150 mm (5.9 in) narrower between the axles, and with an overall length of 4,000 mm (157.3 in) the Prius c is 490 mm (19.1 in) shorter than the standard Prius Liftback.[2] This places the Prius c in the American subcompact class. Japanese versions are also compliant with Japanese government dimension regulations which reduce tax liability. The use of a 1.5 litre engine also reduces the annual Japanese Government road tax obligation.
