    TOYOTA PRIUS SPECS.

    The cockpit of the new Toyota Prius has two zones which are the Command Zone and the Display Zone. Everything has been laid out so that there is ease of operation, reduced eye movement and the need to refocus the eyes while driving.

    In the Command Zone, which is divided between the centre console and steering wheel, all the controls and switches for the climate control and audio system are clearly marked for quick access. Another feature that helps in this aspect is the Touch Tracer system. As the vehicle monitoring display is now near the windscreen, there is no longer any touch screen functions. Instead you control the various displays via steering wheel controls.This feature is a world’s first and allows the driver to make adjustments to the audio system and climate control without taking the hands off the steering wheel. Four touch sensors on two circular pads send signals to the various systems and the operating mode is shown on the screen of the Display Zone.

    A Heads-Up Display (HUD) also available on Toyota Prius where the  information is projected onto the glass in front of the driver. While looking straight ahead, the driver will be able to see the vehicle speed and Hybrid Synergy Drive indicator as an image on the windscreen, enhancing safety. In addition to a manual setting, there is also an automatic display luminosity function which ensures that the images are visible in different lighting conditions.

    The shift lever is positioned in its traditional position and though it resembles a conventional gear knob, the operation is done entirely by electronic signals (shift-by-wire). Therefore only a slight force is needed to make a selection and the lever then returns to a ‘home position’ for ease of subsequent operations.

    8. liquid says:

      nape semuanya kita nk salahkan gomen…kete nie kalau buang tax dia pun ttu kebanyakan org tk mampu beli…nk selamatkan alam sekitar senang aje antaranya :
      1.jangan buang sampah merata2.
      2.jangan lakukan pembakaran terbuka.
      3.kitar semula.
      4.kurangkan pembaziran air.elektrik.

      dan lain2 lg…masalahnya minda kita nie tk terbuka dan asyik nk menyalahkan org lain aje…

      kalau gov salah buat apa kita nak pertahan benda yg salah. kalau betul kita ckp betul kalau salah kita ckp salah. sbg rakyat kita berhak dpt yg terbaik.

      berbalik isu kereta hybridd
      kalau buang cukai aku rasa majoriti golongan profesional muda akan beli kereta ni sebab jimat minyak dan mesra alam. aku rasa harganya tanpa cukai jauh lebih murah berbanding Exora basic. Bagi aku kerajaan patut bagi pengecualian cukai eksklusif bg kenderaan hybrid oleh kerana ia baik untuk alam sekitar.
