    Eeek - weird design, never likely to catch on - like this one:

    Seriously - I can't see that - even with adequate ground clearance - selling. While PRIUS buyers are willing to be a bit different, I can't see them as THAT different. Particularly with some sensible hybrids now available - Corolla, Camry, RAVE4.

    I can see hints of this:

    It's a show piece. It's made specifically to make the vacuous say "OMG! It's got fins!", and the pragmatic say "Ermahgerd! Ert's gert ferns!"

    Toyota will then save the best features for production, and toss the rest.
