Toyota has tested flexfuel Prius and has plans to release it in Brazil late this year

Well, according to the reports, the efficiency while running on ethanol doesn't seem so great at all. And since it's most likely going to retain the sequential port injection with a heated fuel rail like most current flexfuel cars in Brazil, I'd be quite concerned about the effect of frequent cold starts due to the intermittent operation of the ICE in heavy traffic.
