    Yes, CEO Jim Lentz said so, the car continues to show up at Automobile shows, generating positive buzz for Toyota. Ford and Honda plug-ins in this category, are already on the road. I think this car is coming for 2015, especially if Camry is not getting a plug, and Prius/PIP for 2016!

    Not sure I can really believe those numbers until I see them on the lot. Maybe 35 or 40k.
    And an 80 mpg? For real? I thought people were going on and on how even 60 was a stretch for just the hybrid part.

    Looks like a nice car. I would definitely consider it.

    I would not get social media as a HUD on my windshield. I would definitely wreck the car

    Another good job of Toyota team. Awaiting for further information.

    And I like the 'handleless' door. Just a small button and sense to open when needed.

    Yeah I'm not sure about handleless door. It's a cool factor, but I like human control of my door. Imagine if the mechanics screw up, more headache. But I'm guessing maybe this uses the next gen synergy engine and will be 40k+ as a luxury vehicle?

    Cool illuminating ring lights around the touch door handles turn on when remote key is within proximity.

    Tesla's do not have door handles. What's the point. Its a simple push in handle that looks way smoother and I can't imagine its anything that can "go bad"

    :)Seems way too fancy and a giant leap from the Gen 3 to be true. Only thing vaguely familiar is the Hybrid emblem on the front fenders. Only time will tell.

    That's a cool display system. I'm not too sold on that super wide monitor (It does look a bit distracting) but it's wide enough to show other things (like the 12.4" LCD on the 2013 Lexus GS). However, I really do like that mini screen at the bottom to navigate. It's intuitive and within easy reach. And because it doesn't have to compromise between displaying critical information and within easy reach (like our current nav system), it can closer at hand.

    Woow cant wait till the NS4 is available to buy.

    I just hope it becomes available as a normal (non-pluggin) variant as well. Unless of course the pluggin version is priced close to the normal prius price range.

    There will not be a hybrid version, and mid-size like Accord plug-ins are about 40K.

    haha, it won't end up anywhere close to the current Prius price
