    The front end reminds me of Predator.

    But I do like the Prime front-end much more vs. the regular Gen4 front-end

    I think overall, the Prime does look better overall.... autoblog said "...apparently the Toyota designers were not as happy with that look as they might have been...".

    I like the new back end too.

    Too bad about the 4 seat configuration. But glad to see that there will be a donut, unlike PiPv1.

    As for the Predator comment, Toyota is tame compared to their Lexus counterpart grills.

    It was so successful in the Volt.

    The GEN III was a 4-seater too, they just added a center seatbelt. You can not get 3 average sized US adults in the back seat comfortably.

    true, but that's the whole point. now, the only thing you can squeeze in the is two cups and a luger.

    It certainly a sweet commuter for long distance hauler. If you have to drive 100+ miles/day, this IMO is better than the Volt2.

    Just too bad those with 3 kids family needs are written off.

    More I looked at it, the more I am tempted to jump for one. Fixed most of the stuff I did not like for Gen4. Almost like Lexus version with a Toyota badge.

    Just hoping gas prices stay low for another year so we can get this at major discount. Looks like there is about $3750 in IRS tax credit to help out... too bad not like Volt and their $7500 tax credit though.

    Guess I will have to wait and see what Honda has coming as they promised. They said 40 EV miles range...
