Prius MPV to Debut at Detroit Auto Show

Toyota seems to be catching on to this whole social media thing. Last week the automaker teased us with the Prius MPV on its Facebook page and now the folks in the PR department have used Twitter to announce that the second Prius model will debut at the Detroit Auto Show this January.

The vehicle is described as an, “all-new model w/ more comfort, style and versatility. ”

Based on the same architecture, the Prius MPV could get three rows of seats and sliding second row doors. Rumors have hinted that the new model could get a more advanced Lithium Ion battery back, but we’re tempted to think important advances like that would arrive in the original Prius first.

The Prius MPV is just the first of what is expected to be many new Prius models, with a smaller Prius, based on the FT-CH Concept, likely to follow.
