• Spied: Lexus Prius spotted in California

Lexus hybrids have been very easy on the environment. Their hybrids are by far the most technologically advanced of the ones found today in the market. On that context, a re-badged Prius was talked about by many including Toyota president Katsuaki Watanabe, but there was no news or sightings of a test mule; Until now- this Prius err.. Lexus was spotted testing in California.

New rims, quad exhausts, and a lowered stance are the new additions. Expect the interiors to look space ship-like along with all the bells and whistles. When it goes on sale sometime in 2009, it will likely be the cheapest Lexus one can buy. All in all, a premium version of U.S’ most preferred eco-friendly car.

This is not that much different than what I saw on the road during the past few weeks...a Mini Cooper wearing a BMW badge, and a Smart wearing a Mercedes badge.

I doubt this is the new Prius based Lexus hybrid. There would be a lot more camouflage. Besides the new redesigned Prius should come out in 2009 as a 2010 model. Lexus will most likely use the new Prius as their new entry level hybrid.
