-=Hot|Ice=- the Supra is a hybrid I believe coming in October of 07

n0s_speed this ain't going to happen. toyota ain't going to produce just hybrids. their going to lose lots of money.

more people demand power than saving gas. shoot i've seen people that's in their 60s or older drive lambos, ferrarris, lotus, etc. and they drive like their age. way below the speed limit.

Especially when it sat next to the "echo" on the lot. After getting a chance to play with the electronics and gadgets (smart key and push button start), I can understand why people spend 25,000 for them. I also noticed that the 2006 CIVIC sedan is creeping its way into the Prius design realm.

I was surprised at the Prius. Nice inside. Sraight from Japan and FILLED to the brim with convenience technology.
Rumor has it that the 3G Prius will have:

1) Plug-in recharge capability, and
2) The ability to run up to 50 miles on battery only, making its EPA city gas mileage estimate 80+ mpg (and that's by the new method of calculating gas mileage).

that's shocking

CaliMike Its for emissions reasons. They're supposed to let diesels in again once the low sulfur fuel becomes available. There's supposedly ways around it if you bring one in from another state but you can't buy a new one at a dealer.

-=Hot|Ice=- But why? There has to be a good reason behind it?
