I saw something about it. How much of that design will make it to production? I think that Toyota is desperate to maintain Prius sales as crazies choose hybrid versions of the car they actually want to drive (like Tahoes, for some reason).

Would you rather have a hybrid Corolla hatchback or a Prius?

I am sure that most Toyotas are more expensive than Prii, so if Toyota hybrid sales stay the same or even increase, profits do the same, but Prius sales go down, so what?

How many cars of a specific model do you think a manufacturer needs to sell every year to justify making it?

If I won Publisher's Clearinghouse, paid off my credit cards, fixed up Mom's house, and then someone totaled my Accord, would I pursue a Prius?

I do not have any idea. I would go a great deal of math first. I would never purchase a vehicle to say "Hey! Look at me! I drive a...!"
