Gallery: Toyota to Unveil Prius Minivan in 2011


The Toyota Prius revolutionized the world of hybrid cars. Now Toyota is set to dominate hybrid minivans with the upcoming Prius minivan, set to hit showrooms early next year! According to Toyota, the lithium-ion powered minivan will feature a high fuel economy and a large interior, with 3 rows of seats that can hold 5 to 7 people.

Toyota first hinted at a Prius minivan at this year’s North American International Auto Show, where the company announced the impending launch of a “Prius family”. The price of the new vehicle will be comparable to current Prius models, but Toyota hasn’t yet revealed any specifics.

Over the next few years, Toyota plans to unveil 8 hybrids — presumably a handful of them will carry the Prius name. Rest assured that we’ll keep an eye out for any more Prius-branded vehicles that pop up.

    dim: the image is of a recent Toyota concept car which the minivan (and probably the other up-and-coming members of the Prius family) will be patterned on, but which is definitely not a blueprint.

    Toyat claims that there will be 3 rows of seating with room for 6-7 people. Unfortunately that seems to be a lie because the images clearly show that this vehicle only has 2 rows of seating and with the divided seats only has room for 4.
