Some Have Been Waiting a Long Time for a Hybrid Minivan
Autoblog Italy has a supposedly leaked pic of what could very well be the Prius hybrid's big brother, a Prius MPV with three rows of seats (we mentioned it here: Worldwide Prius Sales Top 2 Million, 2 New Variants Rumored for 2012). Google Translate reveals that this hybrid MPV would have "the Prius hybrid HSD platform, composed of 1.8 to Atkinson cycle engine combined with an electric module with a total output of 138 hp." Nothing about MPG, but logically it should be a bit lower than the 2010 Prius. Via Autoblog.it. See also: Toyota to Build Yaris Hybrid in France in 2012
