Despite the hype surrounding electric vehicles (EVs), Toyota’s focus on hybrid technology appears to be a winning strategy.

Sales figures for the first quarter of 2024 reveal a remarkable surge of 138% for the Prius compared to the same timeframe last year.

This trend indicates that consumers might be prioritizing the convenience and ease of use offered by hybrids over the limitations of fully electric vehicles, particularly when considering Toyota and Lexus options.

Notably, Prius sales vastly outpaced those of the combined figures for the bZ4X and Lexus RZ electric models.

While not their top seller, Toyota’s continued success with the Prius underscores the fact that hybrid cars remain a relevant and popular choice for drivers.

Combining fuel efficiency with a touch of sportiness, the Prius Prime caters to a wide range of driver needs.

Guerreiro isn’t afraid to push boundaries, and his latest project reimagines the Prius as a slammed widebody showstopper. While early iterations played with a stormtrooper-esque black and white theme, Guerreiro has reveiled a new look that evokes a retro vibe.

Think 1980s with a modern twist, featuring a sleek blue paint job, exposed carbon fiber accents, and a massive rear wing with integrated LED lighting. The rear bumper gets a motorsport makeover too, with a prominent diffuser flanking chrome dual exhaust tips.
