2010 Prius


A reader sent me this.
Not sure how real it is.
You can tell the car is covered up.
But it does match some of the recent illustrations we've seen a while ago.

Who knows.
We'll see the real thing in January at the Detroit auto show.
Expect better mileage, more room in a more substantial looking car.

A Lexus and plug in versions will come a year later.

Could be a mule for the next model.
Toyota are known for that.
Roll on the hybrids.

That's a 2008 Prius with taped-on panels. Check out the higher-resolution photo of that same car here: http://priuschat.com/forums/prius-hybrid-news/50881-2010-toyota-prius-spy-shot-4.html#post671522

Fuel efficient and practical as it may be, I would never buy one because the exterior styling alone makes me wanna hurl.

Something about the pointy-ness of the styling tells me this is probably the Lexus version. It looks a LOT like the new RX.

Might be the new Honda Insight. Spy shots show that the Honda looks just like a Prius.

Its interesting that alot of people don't like the look of the prius, but why does honda's new hybrid look like a prius??
1 million plus sales can't be wrong

Definitely the real deal...

I wouldn't be surprised if the Prius pictures would be real since latest Toyota redesigns have been on the very safe side.

Honda have blatently ripped off the prius with their new hybrid.
