Toyota Studying Feasibility of Prius-based Pickup
Could Toyota's shelved A-BAT hybrid compact pickup truck concept return as a member of Toyota's newly announced Prius vehicle family? Something similar could happen, according to Bob Carter, group vice president and general manager of Toyota Division at Toyota Motor Sales USA.
Toyota announced its new Prius family of vehicles today at the 2011 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. In addition to the current Prius hatchback and Prius plug-in hybrid, the all-new larger Prius V (the V stands for "versatility") and the sporty Prius C concept vehicle were shown.
"Prius means high mpg, low environment impact," said Carter, adding that a pickup truck could join the family "possibly, if it meets the criteria. It's not off the table, but nothing is decided at this point."
