The Malaysian division of Toyota has recently announced that the Prius C will get a free service package locally for the first 10, 000km.

If you’re a Toyota Prius C owner in Malaysia and you’re reading this news don’t get too excited because there is a catch, the offer is available only for customers who will purchase the vehicle in question between the 6th and the 17th of August, 2012. The Toyota Prius C is powered by a 1.5 liter petrol engine and an electric motor, where the first one is developing 73 PS and 111 Nm of torque, while the second one is generating 61 PS and 169 Nm of torque, helped by a 144 volt nickel-metal hybrid (Ni-MH) battery which is located under the rear seats.

The Toyota Prius C has been launched in Malaysia earlier this year and the model has a starting price of RM97,000 on the road, including insurance. The “green” vehicle is coming with three selectable driving modes: Normal, Eco and EV, where the Eco is helping the driver emit low CO2 emissions and burn just a tiny bit of fuel and the EV is allowing the model to run on electric power alone at speeds up to 45 km/h. In Malaysia, the Toyota Prius C is coming with a 3.5-inch Multi Info Display full color panel, displaying everything from the ECO Store to the Energy Monitor, with a Touch Traces, from the Prius, navigation system, reverse camera and more.
