Toyota to introduce 2 new Prius models image

Toyota plans to sell two new versions of the Prius hybrid in the U.S. by the end of 2012, the Wall Street Journal reports.

One Prius will boast 50% more interior space and storage than the current Prius and the smaller version will be closer in size to the Toyota Yaris model, said the dealers, who declined to be named because the matter is private.
The new models appear to be in company’s announcement in January. The car maker also plans to introduce plug-in version of the Prius in US next year, which can travel about 13 miles on a single electric charge.
Toyota aims to sell 1 million hybrids a year as early as possible this decade and wants to offer a hybrid version of each model it markets in the 2020s.

The automaker is also aiming for U.S. sales of 2 million units by 2013, the Journal said, citing a person it didn’t identify.
