Toyota Prius ‘05 (1:40)
A minifigure-scale replica of the world’s most successful hybrid car.
About this creation
Make fewer visits to the Octan gas pump with the 2005 Toyota Prius!



I wanted to try building another car in minifig-scale; my last one, an updated replica of Cruella de Vil’s car from the animated 101 Dalmatians, was a huge improvement over my old version but turned out a little bigger than desired. This time, I went with a real-life car (mine) and had actual dimensions that I could refer to.



The LEGO vehicle is approximately 1:40 scale (I initially tried 1:48 which is height- but not width-appropriate for minifigs), turning out at a reasonable 6 studs wide. As with my other LEGO artwork, the Prius is 100% LEGO. (You may need to zoom in on the picture above to see the minifig’s car as it sits next to the real one.)



At an overall average of 44 mpg for fuel economy, the Toyota Prius is the most gas-efficient car in the world that doesn’t need to be plugged into an electric port. The Prius (from the Latin for “going before”) uses its four cylinder gas engine to charge up and maintain its drive battery, which can power the car by itself at steady speeds and is recharged whenever the vehicle is coasting or braking.



The car’s body design is a major departure from the styling on other cars, with an unconventional (kind of slug-like) shape that minimizes aerodynamic drag and maximizes interior space (an example of form following function).



One weird feature: The Prius’ rear window is “split,” with an extra pane inserted between the taillights to give the driver better visibility through the raised hatchback.



Thanks for looking; now go build something even better!

Amazingly accurate, especially in the windshield area!

Quoting Kermunklin the Giant Evil House Head That's quite good, but I can't help but notice the LEGO model has far fewer LASER cannons than your actual car. What gives?
Well, Toyota bribed me into keeping some of those features classified on my LEGO MOC, and I didn't want to scare anybody. You know how it goes...

Well this is one of those models of cars that are not the most loved by car entusiasts, but are so awesome and cool in LEGO! Good work on it, I think the windscreen could be improved but the backside is really neat, I'm curious about some building techniques you used.

I think this is one of the best Lego versions of the Prius. Nicely done. The back is especially my favorite part here :)

Lots of interesting techniques on display here. I am impressed by the amount of details you where able to incorporate into this model. Pretty sure the VW Lupo had a higher MPG efficiency though, but its out of production.
