Looks alot like the current prius. I would like to see the headlights, but we will have to wait untill more pictures come out.

No rear wheel skirts! Wimps!!

I'm looking forward to better pics too.

You just know they must be trying hard to best the current car's .26 Cd.

I can't really see anything of the front that I like, but I like what they did with the door handles.

MetroMPG -

Thanks for the pic. The side view is good, but I need to see the car from more angles before I can say that I like the design as a whole. The nose detail from the side looks interesting/aggressive.

I think its a Honda of the asian market. I was on Honda's Japan site this weekend. It looks like a car on the site.

OOO I think the H's on the center caps. Kinda give it away.

The snout does look a bit like the FCX on the same page.

Maybe it's a shot of Honda's standalone hybrid model (Are they still planning to do that?)
