Toyota Prius is set to get its fifth-generation avatar sometime in 2022. Autocar UK reports that the upcoming next-generation Toyota Prius sedan will come retaining the hybrid powertrain. However, the automaker is yet to disclose any further detail about the upcoming new generation model and its specifications.

The new generation Toyota Prius is expected to be based on the Europe-specific E3 architecture. Also, it would borrow some elements from GA-C used by the Corolla and CR-Z. The upcoming new generation Toyota Prius is expected to get some elements from the automaker's dedicated electric bZ architecture as well. The internal combustion engine vehicle sales ban in Europe and UK are not coming before 2030. Hence, Toyota has enough reasons to bring a hybrid Prius instead of a fully electric version.
