Guests at a 10th anniversary Prius event put together a puzzle that revealed part of the new Prius 'microvan'

We'd heard the rumors about different versions of the Prius coming to market, including a smaller, less expensive version to compete with the expected Honda Fit Hybrid. But it looks like we may see a Prius multi-passenger vehicle (MPV) first. Some spy and testing shots have surfaced and it looks like the size will be equivalent to the Mazda 5 or Kia Rondo—perfect for a family. There is speculation that this possible seven-seater can get 40 plus miles per gallon, which will really shake up the competition in this size class. Since some shots appear to have been taken in California, we wonder also if we'll see the Prius MPV at the upcoming LA Auto Show. We'll be on the lookout. Ailis Aaron Wolf Hybrid Owners of America
