Imagine the Toyota Prius. Now imagine it stretched a little longer and taller, perhaps a "Baby on Board" sticker attached to the back, and that may just be what's in store for a new version of the hybrid vehicle.
Japanese news source Nikkei is reporting that Toyota will be releasing a Prius minivan sometime next year. The minivan would be the first expansion of the Prius brand by the automaker.
Beyond being the first hybrid minivan on the market, the vehicle may also be the first Toyota to use an in-house developed lithium-ion battery pack. Details are scarce, but it would likely be a three-row, sliding-door vehicle, capable of seating up to seven people.
The automaker reportedly expects to price the minivan in line with it's fully gas-fueled competition.
