The front end reminds me of late model VWs.

It doesn't sound like they're really upping the ante much with regards to technology, but if they offer it in a wagon then the Chevy Volt may have more competition to worry about.

Looks like some unemployed Ford stylists got a new job designing Prius grilles.

I think the grille / bumper treatment looks like the current Camry, about as innocuous as is possible.
How wimpy is the solar powered A/C going to have to be? If there's been enough advancement in watts per square foot output to run an A/C compressor, there's more than enough to power and drive the entire car if only the hood and trunk are also covered with these pieces of vaporware. There might be enough power to run a flow-through fan when parked with present solar panel technology, but A/C?
And the rear window(s) are unattractive. It is as if Toyota couldn't decide to use small, useful panels like the Insight or CRX, or to completely ugly-up to the Pontiac Aztec sizes, so they settled for useless, and ugly.
Triffic

Still uglier than a bag full of smashed buttholes imho.
Make it a hatch like the Matrix and maybe I'd swap the Mazdaspeed3 for one.
Maybe.

The Prius is a great car. Albeit that it has cosmetic issues.

I'm sure the difference between .32 and .26 Cd is the reason. I'm glad Toyota are not slaves of style.
