8 fuel-saving car technologies
Continued development of hybrid technology
At the Detroit Auto Show, Toyota displayed its current Prius hybrid, along with the plug-in version (with a larger battery), and the Prius V, a crossover/wagon-like version with 60 percent more cargo capacity. It's real, it's proven, and it's only going to get better. The Prius is to hybrids as Chrysler was to the minivan.
