Prius V still charging

Despite being yanked from US dealerships, the family-sized Prius V will continue to feature in Toyota Australia’s plans, for the foreseeable future at least. Launched here in 2012 as a $35,990 range-topper of a petrol-electric hybrid line-up that also included the previous-generation Prius, as well as the Yaris-sized Prius C, the V has fared well here, despite an overall slowdown in Toyota’s hybrid sales. Year to date, the wagon-shaped V has outsold the regular Prius by 92 registrations (334 v 242).
