    My son's '11 Prius has an opening next to rear seat for hybrid battery ventilation. Where is the intake in the previous v? Is it the vent located under the driver's seat?

    Does it need to be kept without any blockages like my son's Prius? Does it need any cleaning?

    Thanks.

    that should be the heat for rear passengers. no vents on the sides or bottom of the rear seat?

    yes, when you find it, don't block it. cleaning would be obvious, but the fan might, if you carry animals.
    check your o/m for location and warning.

    The vent is under the passenger side rear seat, you've got to get down and look up under the seat. That was one of the first things I looked for when I bought my v. It was odd not seeing a vent in sight like other hybrids.

    Just editorial: bold text should read "Prius v"? (n)

    (I know, rampant auto-correct.)

    Oh! You have the Prius plus. It has the hybrid battery inside and underneath the center console between the two front seats. We don’t have the plus here in the USA so I’m not much of a help. I’d say just look really good around your front console
