Toyota said today it will reveal its family of Prius hybrid vehicles at the North American International Auto Show next month in Detroit.
The Prius family consists of four Prius-badged variants: the third-generation standard Prius, a plug-in hybrid Prius, a new Prius concept car and a larger Prius with 50 percent more cargo room.
The vehicles were shown to Toyota’s U.S. dealers at its national dealer meeting in October. Dealers who attended the meeting said the larger Prius, dubbed the Prius-V, was similar in size to the Toyota Venza, with the silhouette of the standard Prius. That vehicle will be the first new addition to the Prius lineup.
The concept vehicle is expected to be smaller than the current Prius. A smaller Prius shown to dealers at the October dealer meeting was called the Prius-C.
