As we’ve mentioned before, the Lexus LF-A Supercar has been a long time coming. It is now four years since Lexus teased us with the possibility and it seemed for a while as if it was just that – a tease and nothing more. But we’ve seen the Lexus LF-A out testing in close to […]
We’ve reported before that Hybrid car sales in Japan are going through the roof, with first the Honda Insight being the best selling car in Japan, soon to be overtaken by the new Toyota Prius. In fact, the Toyota Prius and the Honda Insight are the two best-selling cars in Japan bar none. And what […]
Well it looks like all the scrapping between Honda with its Insight and Toyota with its Prius is, as we recently said, going to pay dividends for buyers of Hybrid cars in the UK. The next generation Toyota Prius will start delivery in the UK in August, and Toyota has just announced that it will […]
There has been a lot of hype surrounding the next generation Toyota Prius, which has recently launched in Japan, and which we can expect soon in the UK.

We brought you news yesterday of the new Honda Insight, which Honda is launching in to the European market. Honda has made big noises about the Insight being significantly cheaper than the Prius, which seems to have got Toyota thinking. The next generation Toyota Prius (unveiled recently at Detroit) is due out before too long, […]
