Toyota Prius C Hybrid Video at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show

The Prius design language goes compact in the Toyota Prius C that was shown at teh 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Bringing the now-familiar Prius look to the sub-compact category, the small, 4-door hatch edition is due in dealerships in the 2nd quarter of 2012. Claiming a 50 mpg rating, the lightweight version of the traditional Prius is a fitting offering in the category, competing only with the Honda CR-Z which is only a two-seater.
