Prius not separate… yet

Toyota Prius fq

Rumors have recently surrounded Toyota saying that a separate Prius brand will be announced by the automaker shortly. Toyota has replied on its own blog by stating that it is only a maybe at this stage.

Toyota can confirm that it’s considering a hybrid-only brand that would see separate space in dealerships – much like what is already being done with the Scion brand in the States. But a final decision has not yet been made and Toyota’s not even sure what products would fall under that new brand name, except for the Prius. Rumors continue about new hybrids from Toyota, including Prius-like hatchbacks both a bit larger and a bit smaller than the current model.
