Toyota’s “Big Daddy Prius” to be unveiled in Detroit.

In just a few short weeks, Toyota will be debuting their latest hybrid vehicle which is part of the “Prius” family of vehicles. At last year’s NAIAS 2010, Toyota teased us with a mini Prius concept called the FT-CH concept. The FT-CH is a dedicated full hybrid vehicle featuring a compact exterior with maximum interior space.  For 2011, Toyota will finally unveil their latest Prius creation which will have the the same basic recipe as the original but in a larger more versatile package. This is no surprise to us as this is a part of Toyota’s strategy with new hybrids by 2012. The latest “Big Daddy Prius” is geared towards those with an active lifestyle as this new car has 50% more cargo space than the current Prius! So who would like something like this? X-Games championship skateborder, Bob Burnquist would. He talks about his active lifestyle, his Prius, and the next big talk of the town:
