First Generation Prius hybrid petrol-electric car, built by Toyota Motor Corporation, Japan, 1997. This is an example of the world's first mass-produced petrol-electric hybrid car.

The Prius was the world's first mass-produced petrol-electric hybrid car. Developed as a result of Toyota’s 1992 Earth Charter, which set a corporate commitment to develop and market road vehicles with the lowest emissions possible, the Prius was designed as a reliable and efficient ultra-low emission vehicle (as defined by the American EPA).

Toyota launched the Prius in 1997. Over 120,000 of the first-generation model were sold, but at a price that was 50% of the cost of manufacturing the vehicle. The sedan body style of this model is rare in Europe, unlike the sleek lift-back version we are more used to seeing on our streets. Prius was chosen for the car’s name as it is Latin for before or prior.
