Every family is made up of individuals, each with their own unique traits, but all united by their
haunting memories of the holidays love for one another. Now, the Toyota Prius has expanded into a family: the original one, the bigger one, the smaller one, and the one that plugs in.
3rd Gen Prius
Presently available, the latest take on the original innovator boasts a combined estimated 50 city/hwy mpg, and offers three driving modes: POWER (enhanced throttle), ECO (better gas mileage), and EV, which allows the car to go low speeds without using any gas, or Bedrock-style pedaling.
The v is not for “vendetta against gas guzzlers"; it's for “versatility”, as this spacious ride -- which comes out this fall -- offers 50% more cargo space than the 3rd Gen.
Prius c Concept
Set to hit the road in spring 2012, this city-friendly dynamo will also be the family's most affordable, and smallest -- but with even greater mpg than the 3rd Gen, it'll be too busy not stopping at gas stations to get picked on.
Prius Plug-in Hybrid
Available in spring 2012, this eco-friendly ride is the most advanced member of the family yet, powered by a high-tech engine that’s electric and hybrid -- the best of both worlds, just like choco-tacos.
