Toyota Prius minivan ready for 2011 production

Rumours of a larger Prius vehicle have been circulating for a while, but it now looks increasingly likely that Toyota is preparing to launch a new hybrid minivan that will wear the Prius badge. This new vehicle will be the first completely new vehicle added to the Prius range and could join the well-known hatchback sometime next year.

The new Prius hybrid minivan may be the first vehicle from Toyota to be equipped with an in-house developed lithium ion battery pack. With three rows of seats the Prius Minivan should also be equipped with sliding doors and should be able to seat up to seven people, further pushing Toyota’s hybrid appeal into the family-vehicle market.

Very few details are currently available but in terms of pricing Toyota would like to keep the price close to that of standard petrol minivans currently on the market.
