    the hatch, or the car? i think someone measured the hatch, but try finding that kind of info around here.:cool:
    searching 'prime cargo space' turns up a post by tideland saying the gen 4 with spare tyre is 1 cubic foot bigger than gen 3, or 2 cubic feet bigger with no spare.
    i need height for recycling bins and the like. have to wait to see it in person i guess.

    The car more likely. I would assume they wouldn't put it all in the tail end of the car or the front. More likely to be 50/50.

    6" is a huge increase.

    I know, right? It's getting to be in van territory if it gets any bigger.

    That makes it slightly longer than a RAV4 Hybrid.

    That extra length is compared to the 1GPiP (i.e. the Gen 3). The Gen 4 is a bit longer than the Gen 3 and the Prime is a bit longer than the Gen 4 (about 1" longer in the front and 2.6" longer in the back according to Nathan in the Walkaround video). At half a foot longer, it's almost the length of the Prius v.

    I didn't bring a measuring tape to NYC. I'll remember that if we get invited to a test drive event.
