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.
