Toyota is putting the finishing touches on the 2015 Prius, so Remco Meulendijk decided to create a rendering of what the model could look like.

Set to be introduced sometime next year, the redesigned model has a lot riding on it so it will likely have an evolutionary design like the rendering. This belief is echoed by previous spy photos which have shown the car will keep its distinctive wedge shape.

Toyota has been tight-lipped about the 2015 Prius but the company has already confirmed it will be "the first [model] to introduce a substantially improved family of hybrid powertrains” that deliver "significantly improved fuel economy in a more compact package that is lighter in weight and lower in cost."

The company also confirmed the model will ride on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) and have improved aerodynamics as well as a more accommodating cabin with "significant refinements in design, layout and ease of operation."
