Toyota Prius Hybrid Minivan to be launched in 2011; to deploy Lithium-Ion battery pack

Toyota Prius Minivan 6

Toyota is gearing up to roll out a hybrid minivan under the Prius brand. The new car, a minivan, is expected to hit the tarmac in 2011. Marking a first, the minivan will be the first ever Toyota vehicle to be powered by a lithium-ion battery pack developed in-house.

The Prius-badged beauty will also become the first hybrid minivan available in the US and will come as a seven-seater that would lure family-oriented buyers.

Expected to sport a price tag of something close to $20,000, the Prius minivan could win laurels as an efficient people mover. 

The lithium-ion batteries come as a change considering the fact that all other Toyota hybrids deploy nickel metal hydride power source. With the Prius minivan set to adopt the Li-Ion batteries, it looks like Toyota is going for a shift on power strategy.
