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.
