New "entry-level" UX, built on Prius platform, will be available as an AWD hybrid.

 

https://www.consumer...t-young-buyers/

 

Of interest is some of the software:

 

"The UX debuts three pieces of software designed to improve fuel economy. Predictive Efficient Drive analyzes driving habits to optimize hybrid battery use, Predictive Deceleration Support remembers where drivers have slowed down or braked in the past and increases regenerative braking accordingly, and Predictive State of Charge uses the car’s onboard navigation system to predict when the battery should charge."

 

I assume the last 2 may take into account hills and other road conditions that it would be good for a hybrid system to anticipate ("I likely have a long downhill charging opportunity coming up, so I will deplete charge now"). 

The first is an onboard Paul Jones.   : )
