Comments Off on Bigger, Roomier Prius V Goes on Sale Next Month

The Prius line is expanding rapidly these days.  Toyota will begin selling the bigger and roomier Prius v next month in the U.S., opening up their popular hybrid franchise to those who need to carry a bit more with them on the road. The Prius v looks a lot like the regular Prius except for the extended cargo space in the rear.  According to Toyota, the vehicle will offer more storage space than 80 percent of all small SUVs — a nice 34.3 cubic feet of it. The Prius v will use the same hybrid drivetrain as the regular Prius.  As for mileage, the larger size does take down the fuel efficiency a bit.  The Prius v is rated for 44 mpg city and 40 mpg highway with a rating of 42 mpg combined.  The regular Prius has a combined rating of 50 mpg. For a nice-sized hybrid, the price is actually pretty affordable.  The car comes in three levels ranging from $26,400 to $29,990. A plug-in version will likely follow soon. via Green Car Congress
