Toyota released the first official image of the Prius c today and announced the lineup of world premiers scheduled for the Tokyo Motor Show.

Dubbed “Aqua” in Japan, the Prius c is barely bigger than a Toyota Yaris, seats five people and will constitute the smallest member of the Prius family upon its launch.

The Prius c’s hybrid system (a 1.4L gas engine coupled with an electric motor) will allow for exemplary fuel efficiency at just 2.86L/100 km.

The Toyota Prius c will join the brand’s U.S. and Canadian lineups in the spring of 2012, and will make its North American debut at the upcoming Detroit auto show.

Toyota’s Tokyo unveilings:
  • Prius c/Aqua
  • FT-86/Scion FR-S
  • FCV-R Concept: A sedan powered by hydrogen batteries with a range of 700 km or more that Toyota is looking to introduce in 2015.
  • FT-EV III Concept: An ultralight EV with a 105-km range.
  • Fun-Vii Concept: A vehicle that “builds a solid link between society, cars and people.”
