Introduction
Since its North American debut for the 2001 model year, the Toyota Prius has become the poster child for the "green" movement among U.S. new-car buyers. Toyota proudly states that the Prius was the first mass-produced gas-electric hybrid vehicle available for sale in the U.S. Honda, makers of the gas-electric hybrid Insight from 2000-06, might dispute that claim, but the Prius was the clear favorite among new-car buyers at the time, outselling the Insight by a large margin. And unlike the stillborn GM EV1 electric car that first hit the market in the late 1990s and was handicapped by its limited range and 2-door/2-passenger design, the Toyota's 5-door hatchback/5-passenger design and extended range appealed to buyers. Following its initial success, the second-generation Prius debuted for 2004 and introduced Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive system. Larger and offering more creature features than the original, the second-gen Prius also provides increased economy and, by most accounts, better driving dynamics. Continuing to build a loyal following, the Toyota Prius is now among the top 20 best-selling models in the U.S.

Upping the hybrid car ante once again, the all-new 2010 Toyota Prius was unveiled at the 2009 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The next-generation Prius is built on a new platform, which enables improved handling stability and collision safety, along with quieter operation, according to the company. The new car features a gas-electric hybrid powertain consisting of a 1.8-liter, 4-cylinder gasoline engine and an 80-horsepower electric motor. The new 2010 Prius is also larger and features more advanced technology than the outgoing model.
