Gallery: TRANSPORTATION TUESDAY: The 2010 Prius Revealed

 

Recently several auto sites revealed a first glimpse of the eagerly anticipated 2010 Prius! Currently scheduled for official unveiling in January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the revamped model features a similar body shape with a redesigned front, more interior room, and better fuel economy.

Toyota‘s Open Road Blog confirmed the veracity of the pics shortly after they surfaced, stating that “This new Prius will retain all of the virtues of the model that precedes it.” From what we can see the vehicle shares many similarities with its predecessor, and we will have to wait till January to hear what’s under the hood. For the present you can check out our earlier post about the rumours of a solar powered prius if you’d like to dream a bit.

    [...] How is the Volt different from a hybrid vehicle like the Prius? [...]

    Isn\’t this just yet another car ? I.e. another way of burning fuel to get about instead of travelling by your own muscle power ? 90% of journeys under 2 miles within the US are by car. A slightly more efficient car isn\’t what is needed. Getting people to walk or cycle is what is needed.
