    Toyota has released a teaser about it's new NS4--high res shot of a headlamp assembly and a video with some vague tracing of the body lines and fuzzed out car side. To be introduced at the Detroit Auto Show on the 10th. I know there are a lot of "pure EV or nothing" folks here, but there are a lot of people not ready for a pure EV, but who are desperate for a "good" Plug-in Hybrid as a bridge vehicle...I'm excited to hear what Toyota has here.

    I hope the range is more than the 10-14 miles the Prius offers.

    I'm confident it will be. The question is how much more...I'd guess they're going to aim to top the Volt's 40 mile range.
