    Active shatters $3-500
    Battery x2 $1,500
    Weight savings (Al/plastic hood, hatch, door skins, etc) $1,000
    Total ~$3,000
    This may come to a lesser number via discontent. Removing spare, sound insulation will not only make car lighter, cheaper too.

    According to Danny, the core model will come in (at least) 3 trims, so my question to you is:
    How much more (or less) than what?

    Don't all models have active shutters?

    Eco is going to be the cheapest model of the bunch, it is not going to be more expensive...

    Agreed. It might as well come standard with this hood ornament:

    Active shutters are standard. We saw it on the silver car in Las Vegas which looks to be fairly basic, if not, THE basic car.

    Interesting number. Why? Why not $25,000 or a price drop to $24,500? o_O

    Most likely. We saw it on the silver car in Las Vegas, which looked fairly basic (no white trim and urethane steering wheel)

    Since active shutters help in reducing emissions as well as improving fuel economy it will be counter-constructive not to have them in all models.

    not sure what does that mean but standard will have nice equipment... for instance, it will have full LED headlights :).

    Also, just saw Eco model pics on twitter, it also seemed to have alloy wheels.

    As Netcub said, Uber. Prii is the default car shown on their site:

    Uber

    Yes, the bi-LED's are welcome standard equipment. I have them on a new Camry and they're more effective than any halogen, HID's or off-road lights I've ever used. The color, pattern, reach and penetration into rain, snow and fog are unmatched. Plus of course they gain 0.0025 mpg over the others. ;-}

    What color were the alloy wheels you saw on the Eco? I'll most likely be buying a set of FR-S takeoffs from someone, they're usually the first thing owners mod although I kept mine and just put on sticky rubber. The FR-S wheels fit Gen III's, not sure about Gen IV, but they're fairly light at 20 lbs., come with Primacy summer performance rubber 215/45-17 for a total weight of 44 lbs. per corner and a set of four new takeoff wheels+tires can usually be found for about $400 on one of the forums. I've seen them on a Gen III and they looked great.
