    There’s a few bits on this concept car that seem to have made it through to the Prius- see if you spot any more!

    • The hockey-stick linear LED gauge on the panel
    • Headlights pulled up off the waterline and set up high where parking collisions won’t get them- the 2011 Prius c concept did this too.
    • Something about the lines of the windshield and the vent windows at the front sides seems familiar.

    Exterior-wise, all I see is a Range Rover

    with maybe a touch of pontiac Fiero front end

    Fascinating! Thanks for that. I did enjoy reading the Jalopnik comments section for that article.

    Bit of an eye opener!

    . . . . and DeLorean. If there is Prius look to that thing, I must have serious eye problems & need to go to the ophthalmologist, because I just can't see it.

    many cars nowadays have overhead/Birdseye camera views. I don't know why Prius can't get that. Maybe some here have never seen that coolness feature so, below is a shot from our screen's birdseye view;

    It took quite a bit of time for previous owners to complain about no backup camera as standard equipment, so I suppose eventually this will get included.
