Toyota May Build a 7-Seater Prius

Toyota is currently thinking of another new addition to the growing Prius family. This fall Toyota will launch the larger Prius V model, but Toyota is reportedly thinking about an even larger Prius model with three rows of seats.

The three-row Prius would not be the same model as the Prius Alpha that is sold in Japan. The Prius Alpha is basically a Prius V with a third row of seats crammed in the back. According to Bob Carter, Toyota’s division manager, the new larger Prius would be large enough to hold seven passengers and all their stuff.

Carter claims that nothing has been decided, but a concept is being studied. Early next year Toyota will launch two more Prius models, the Prius C compact hybrid and a plug-in version of the standard Prius.
