    Ten Design Proposals for a Futuristic Toyota Prius - Carscoop

    While fooling around on IED's (Istituto Europeo di Design) official website we stumbled upon an interesting project with ten proposals for the Toyota Prius of the no so far-away future created by the students of the Transportation Design Course of IED Turin in 2007. Even though the students were supposed to design the Prius of 2010-2015, the resulting hybrid vehicles look more like the Prius of 2035, but then again, artistic minds do have the tendency to drift away in time...

    Thanks for posting. Hmmm I still like the Hybrid X better. It's headlamps are part of the dashboard.

    No need. They are LED!! :D If they really need to be replaced, just reach under the dash. There is no need to pop the hood.

    Yeah, I too love the design of the Hybrid X and hope that Toyota decide to actually go forward with it.
