There is no doubt, the Toyota Prius is the best selling Hybrid car there has ever been. Toyota has marketed the car brilliantly, and it is seen, by many who wouldn’t normally be seen dead in a mid-range Toyota, as the car to drive.
But things are changing. The world is starting to wake up to the down-sides of the hybrid, and is starting to focus on real ‘Green’ technology, such as the Hydrogen EV. But there is life left yet in the Hybrid model, and Toyota is not going to let the grass grow under its feet (especially as Prius sales are falling rapidly). So it’s been teasing us recently with so called spy-shots and leaks, which in all honesty look pretty much like a sneaky viral campaign run by Toyota (although it could just be the cynic in me!).
So here we have the best view yet of the new Prius, which should hit showrooms in 2009, designated the 2010 Prius. Lots of Blue Faced Men, but a pretty good view of what the car is like.
