I'm guessing based on what is mentioned about range that they put the minimum sized battery that qualifies for the full $7,500 federal tax credit.

As I've always said, I wouldn't burn up those credits with anything less. I'd either make hybrids that didn't qualify for any credit at all, or plug-ins that qualify for the full amount.

Curious what the MPG will be.

...and it seems we've got at least 1 more vehicle generation with exaggerated faux grills. My guess is the very next generation will make it look terribly outdated. That said, I'm not one to care much about vanity, but form should follow function.

It all makes sense now when Toyota started calling the plug-in Prius the Prius Prime. Prime is now what they call their plug-in version of vehicles it seems.
