    Toyota put out a pretty good "sizzle reel" to show off the new Prime:



    And I've edited the Periscope walk-around video that the PriusChat team was able to capture in New York this morning with Nathan Kokes from Toyota.

    any idea when (1H? 2H?) PP will become available in dealerships, so someone can do a detailed review before we make any decision?

    that's going to be too late. I'm getting a new car before August and I thought they would introduce this since there is no 2016 plugin. comparing 2015 PIP to other manufacture's 2016 offering is going to be fun

    yes, it's sad. I thought the brand new PP would be coming out few months late just like gen4. didn't expect it to be 1 year or longer late

    Since there's no joking emoticon, I have to assume you're being serious. If so, no that is not a robot. It's just animation for story telling.

    No, that is not the reason. Here's why the Prime has 4 seats | PriusChat
