The Toyota Prius V is the second model in the expanded Prius lineup. Toyota is preparing the media launch of the V later this month, with the wagon-like hybrid going on sale sometime this summer. (The first sales were scheduled for late summer, but could be delayed due to the effects of the March 11 earthquake in Japan.)
Toyota stopped by Berkeley today to give HybridCars.com our first look at the Prius V, which has 50 percent more cargo space than the current Prius, while delivering 42 miles per gallon in city driving and 38 mpg on the highway.
All the specs and details—as well as driving impressions—about the Prius V are coming in the next week or two. In the meantime, here are a few of our photos that reveal if the V for Versatility lives up to its name.
