Fushiki, S., "The New Generation Front Wheel Drive Hybrid System," SAE Int. J. Alt. Power. 5(1):109-114, 2016, doi:10.4271/2016-01-1167.
Introducing all-new front wheel drive hybrid system installed in the 2016 Toyota Prius. This system was completely re-designed to maximize the potential of THS-II (Toyota Hybrid System-II). This system was designed to be able to minimize the mechanical and electrical losses from the previous generation system, improve environmental performance, and also tried to reduce size and weight. We’d like to take this opportunity to introduce the new technology of each component, and hybrid system performance.
