Found this old picture of a '68 Brazilian Willys-Renault Gordini IV that I took in 2007.

Prius prime

Saw my first one in the wild yesterday.

No pic - driving!

Coincidentally, today I read a report that the non-PHEV Prius is getting a facelift this year. BECAUSE UGLY. The car's controversial styling has to have contributed to lackluster sales.

They say they may make the front closer to the style of the Prime.

It is not a pig! It is an extremely good car, it just looks like a warthog.

Forgot to mention here when I saw one; saw a Geo Metro sedan 2-3 weeks ago on my way to a college trip - first one I've seen that I've known what it was; Metros are pretty rare around where I am. And Metros are definitely eco cars. Also saw a Leaf and a couple Volts. Ecocars really aren't that common around here. In an average parking lot there's maybe only one car that beats mine as far as FE goes, and it's usually a Prius.

It would be perfect if it were the XFi Metro! XFi + VX = herd of unicorns.

I spotted a clean '93 low miles Metro for sale this AM... $3000 for a 25 year-old Metro -- crazy times coming back?

I don't know to which extent a Porsche Panamera could be considered "eco", but this one is a plug-in hybrid

^ I may have posted earlier in this thread... I once saw a driver getting into a Panamera in a parking lot and paused a few seconds to hear the engine start. It didn't... drove away on e-power. Hybrid! Psych!
