As a follow up to Autosaurus' post about hybrid cars, the folks at priuschat have posted a few pictures of what may be the new Totota Prius. If it is, the lineage is obvious and, in my opinion, unfortunate. Who made the rule that dedicated hybrids like the Prius and the Honda Insight have to be ugly? In the early days of electric cars at the beginning of the 20th century, they were beautifully appointed with the finest fabrics, beveled glass, gold trim and even patent leather panels. They were as beautiful as they were efficient. It's too bad we're subjected to mediocrity like the Prius today.
