Recently, the network appeared the first image of a hybrid minivan Toyota Prius, which has grown considerably in comparison with the conventional Prius, but in his cabin had a third row of seats. The seven-seater Prius should debut in early 2011 at the motor show in Detroit. Novelty is based on increased by 300 mm Platform Standard Edition Prius, but the power plant at the minivan remained the same. Remember, this is – a 1.8-liter gasoline engine and an electric motor, giving a total of 136 hp Since the minivan Prius was slightly larger and heavier than the hatchback, it certainly will increase consumption, and high-speed performance on the contrary – will decrease. As far as it is not reported. In addition, it is likely that the seven-seater version will be powered by lithium-ion batteries instead of nickel-hybrid mounted on a five-seater car. More details about the new product will be known closer to its North American premiere at the International Motor Show in January.
