    The great Prius Product Educator Dave Lee performed the technical presentation at Toyota's press event last week, and it is presented below along with the complete presentation with the more "fluffy" product introduction before it (the introduction was obviously first, so watch that video first if you want to see the whole thing).

    This was Dave's last press technical presentation as he is moving to another part of Toyota. He's a great ambassador for the Prius and has given every Prius technical presentation that I've seen.

    Are we going to get his slide deck?

    From the side, it is hard to see the details.

    I'm trying to get a hold of it. I also took photos of a lot of it and will be posting those in this photo album today: 2016 Toyota Prius First Drive Photos | PriusChat

    Hi!
    They wrote that rigidity has been increased by 60%. Specifically it is how much?
    1st generation Prius has 22400.

    I never heard an exact number, but I can try to follow-up and ask.

    In one of the chart, it is more rigid than the Golf and Lexus CT200h, I believe. I don't have the numbers for them, just to pass on that info in case someone do know.

    Anything said by the rigidity of the body?

    That means a 4T with PCP will be less than $1.00 Per Rigidity! I never thought this could happen! :D

    Wouldn't you expect an increase in rigidity with a more exciting design? Rigidity often follows excitement.

    35,840?
    This stiffness, or the price?
    or stiffness on the basis of 1 generation?
