    I believe the non-Plugin Gen 3 also has a cargo area that folds flat, but I have not owned a Gen 3. Perhaps one of our Gen 3 owning members can confirm. @bisco? @Mendel Leisk?

    It almost folds flat: the rear seat back has a slight uphill slope. And carpeted. We keep an old blanket throw in there, all the time.

    My sister-in-law showed up once with a bunch of boxes in a Matrix, I was impressed: with the back seats down the floor is dead-level, durable looking plastic, with longitudinal ridges IIRC. Sliding stuff out was a breeze; it was a mini cargo van.

    The Prius isn’t a permanent dwelling but I do take lunch time naps a few times a week. Fold the rear down and have a pillow in the car. Best place to lay down flat

    I've barely had my Gen2 for a month and slept in it twice so far, just took the back seats out and will be building a flat floor with build in storage where they used to be over the next few days.

    I've lived in and camped out of out of busses, vans and wagons for a few years now, the Prius is the most economical by far, and the electronics are very handy
