Half the size, half the cost. That's what Toyota is looking for in the next generation Hybrid Synergy Drive systems for Priuses. What they're not looking for? Diesels and pure electric vehicles. While it's great to have a cheaper Prius with more trunk room, that only covers the Prius!
Diesels definitely have a place with many manufacturers jumping into the field, especially for gas-guzzling trucks. And electric vehicles? They are the future of medium range transport in the coming years. I hope Toyota has something else up their sleeves other or they might be left behind.
