    Given it’s not likely a US release there won’t be much coverage until it’s almost ready to hit the streets which may be over a year off, given it’s still just a mule

    I was hoping for something a little less SUV-like and a little closer to Prius fuel economy.

    Prius V could continue its development as the 3Gen-4Gen did. Here in Europe Toyota still sells the Prius+ (7 seat version of the V, and with a Li-ion pack under the dash).
    TNGA, updated transaxle/powerplant (10% more fuel economy), and a plug...would buy one immediately.

    after sales began to tank . . . . the company likely had 2nd thoughts.
    what a shame.

    I assumed a hybrid Corolla hatchback is as close as we’ll get to new v in the states.

    Not even close. Wheelbase show us the Prius 4gen is still larger than the new Corolla Hatchback...

    Corolla E210 Hatchback -wb 104in.
    Prius XW50 - wb 106.3in.
    Prius XW40 (Prius v) - 109.4in

    (and cabin measurements which I didn't search for)
