Honda to Take Toyota’s Prius Head-On
Here’s the latest spy shot of Honda’s plan for a new gas/electric vehicle. The finished vehicle is expected to debut at the Paris Motor Show and is reported to share styling with Honda’s FCX hydrogen-powered sedan. From the photo it looks like Honda is also taking styling cues from Toyota. The Honda-Prius connection may pure coincidence considering that a round-faced hatchback gives little wind resistance. Then again, the car’s look may be very intentional, as Honda wants to copy a winning strategy. After all, Honda is not used to losing, and this is its second attempt at an original gas/electric hybrid vehicle—anyone remember the unloved Insight?
