there are a lot of factors that are going into this concept of "5" that are largely tied to social factors.

also, the old odyssey is much larger than the prius v. the prius v is not a van.

Toyota is (apparently) choosing to not offer the 7 seat option in the USA; but they are offering it elsewhere.

And again I have to ask ALL the automakers, "where is the efficient people-hauler option?" The Mazda5 is currently the best available, at a miserable 21/28 mpg.

I believe Toyota does offer a hybrid mini-van overseas and has for a few years now.

talking about the estima hybrid? it is and always was a right steering car, i think. maybe i will buy an estima once the santamo falls apart. i feel no need, to sit on the right side. guess i´m getting old...

get a car from the uk to germany is not to esay, but in this case worth the effords.

I agree, although I think the V still has its place. If I had 2 kids, its what I would be looking at.

Regarding the people hauler option... one could take the V6 Accord hybrid drivetrain and stuff it in an Odessey to make something semi-efficient.

Or Camry hybrid drivetrain in the Sienna?

the Prius V appears to be aimed towards homo erectus americanus in it's five seatedness. studies have shown that the growth rate of the most developed nations are dwindling as the education levels soar.

The battery is 10kg lighter, and 0.3 kWh less than the regular prius.
Due to the additional weight and shorter gearing, on a slightly less powerful battery, it'll be a bit lower.
