If you are a fan of the Toyota brand, you are about to find yourself in the middle of a flurry of breaking news and developing stories.
I expect the world’s leading automaker to announce several new vehicle updates, refresh improvements, and new trim levels/grades across its current fleet of cars and SUVs and trucks. Even brand-new vehicles are coming to the Toyota lineup.
This includes Toyota Prius.
2022 Toyota Prius News
This is the Prius Nightshade. We are not sure yet if this will be an entirely new trim level or a package upgrade for a current trim. It could be added to Prius LE, XLE or Limited.
My guess is a new Toyota Prius trim level altogether.
In the video we see what we think is a Midnight Black Metallic Prius with black accents, including a prominent black Toyota logo.
I would expect to see Prius Nightshade featuring many glossy black accents like its wheels, side mirror caps, front and rear badging and headlight housing. The front end specifically could see unique black accents as well.
Toyota Prius 2020 Edition
Toyota currently offers a “Prius 2020 Edition” for the 2021 model year. This is indeed a special edition, as Toyota only manufactured 2,020 of these one-of-a-kind hybrids.
The Prius 2020 Edition marked the 20th anniversary of Prius, which was first sold in 2021.
This special edition Prius comes with statement-making black inserts for its 17-inch alloy wheels, as well as blackened headlight housing, with black vertical B-pillar strips.
It would come as no surprise for Toyota Prius to replace the 2020 Edition with Prius Nightshade.
Other Toyota Nightshade models
Prius Nightshade will not be the only Toyota Nightshade model. This will join other popular Toyotas like Tacoma, Tundra, Camry, Corolla, Corolla Hatchback, Sequoia, Avalon and C-HR.
4Runner Nightshade is expected to be discontinued in favor of a new 2022 4Runner grade.
