Spy photographers have caught the next-generation Toyota Prius hybrid car undergoing testing ahead of its official unveiling at the 2009 Detroit Motor Show.

Although the new car is heavily disguised, the photos show that Toyota designers haven't made major changes to the petrol-electric hybrid vehicle's distinctive look. That's backed up with our exclusive computer generated images (see images).


This concept can be driven for about 100 km on battery power alone before its four-cylinder 1.6-litre Flexifuel engine is required.

The conversion is part of a two-year research project sponsored by the National Rural Cooperative's Research Association's Cooperative Research Network. Photo courtesy of Athens Banner-Herald.

The plug-in variant would ditch the concept Up!'s hatchback profile for a more traditional sedan configuration, and offer 100 mpg fuel efficiency.
