2022 Toyota Aqua revealed with hybrid powertrain, bidirectional charging

After 10 years on the market, during which 1.87 million units have been sold, the Toyota Aqua is transitioning to the second generation. It exited the North American market where it was known as the Prius C a few years ago, but it continues in its domestic market Japan with a fresh look, a different platform, and some clever features.

Featuring a far more modern design than its predecessor, the 2022 Aqua has been fitted with a one-pedal operation mode as regenerative braking kicks in the moment the driver eases the pressure on the accelerator pedal. Offered as standard with front-wheel drive, the small electrified hatchback can be ordered with an E-Four system for better traction courtesy of AWD.

Toyota claims it’s the first automaker to install a high-output bipolar nickel-hydrogen in a road-going hybrid. Compared to the battery pack used by the first-gen Aqua, the new cells offer better, smoother acceleration at low speeds while featuring double the output over the original model’s pack. At the same time, the hatchback can travel at higher speeds than before when the internal combustion engine is turned off.

Interestingly, the vehicle comes equipped as standard with support for bidirectional charging courtesy of a power outlet (1,500W / AC100 V) which incorporates an emergency power supply mode. This will come in handy in a blackout as the energy stored in the car’s batteries can be used to power various household appliances.

Riding on the TNGA-B platform, the 2022 Aqua has a 50-mm longer wheelbase than before and boasts a large 10.5-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system. The driver’s seat rotates and there are plenty of storage spaces throughout the cabin, giving the hatchback impressive practicality for such a small car. The greater distance between the axles has generated additional legroom for rear passengers along with a more spacious cargo area.

Looks good. Wonder there will be a new Prius and Prius plus. This design language is very attractive.

Let's guess when/if it comes to Singapore through BM, the first thing people will notice is the small infotainment screen that is fitted to all BM models.

Just my opinion but the HU in the pic looks oversized n boxy unlike the sleek HUs we see in Avante n Mz3 amongst others. So whilst it maybe big, it looks kinda out of proportion to me.

Watch the carbuyer Singapore review of the Yaris GR sport, then you will feel absolute disgust about BM model's head unit, which is really a big box with small screen equipped. You are right, if Avante, Mazda 3 can give a slim yet big and presentable infotainment screen why can't Toyota.

Not a fanboy of Toyota and still is. 

It has the typical boring jap look and forgettable design that no one would bother with. 

And what's with the tombstone like display in the middle that look out of sort. 

 

The recent ope bumblebeel look  so much handsome and musculine.

Big unit but the bezel like cover half of it.

Hope it's not a reincarnated Milo tin like the previous model....
