Default New Toyota Prius to run old Ni-MH battery in Australia

Despite the new 2016 Toyota Prius being available with a modern lithium-ion traction battery, Toyota Australia has revealed that it will stick with the older Nickel-Metal Hydride cells for its local vehicles instead. Speaking to CarAdvice , Tony Cramb, executive director of sales and marketing for Toyota Australia, explains that the decision to keep with the traditional Ni-MH batteries follows a thorough examination of the local market's requirements, with cost factors naturally considered as well.
