Toyota Prius

Here's a good look at the next-generation Toyota Prius

The inside word from Japan is that the 2009 version of the landmark hybrid will deliver better fuel economy and more power. Engine size increases to 1.8 litres. New batteries and refinements to the Hybrid Synergy drive – maybe even a solar panel on the roof and eventually plug-in capability – could up city-economy to 2.9 litres per 100 kilometres (80 mpg). It may not look it, but the body will be all-new, growing 2.5 centimetres wider, but getting some 3 centimetres shorter in overall length.
