The Toyota Prius is the most succesful hybrid car in the world. Currently there are already two generations of the toyota Prius.And recently there has been a rumours that Toyota is working on the Prius Coupe.
Theres not much details on the project but most probably the Coupe will feature Italian Design. Toyota is considering having Pininfarina or Italdesign to create the styling for the new model.

Power would likely be provided by the same Prius 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with Synergy Drive found on the standard model. And while the engine’s 98hp and 142Nm of torque isn’t exactly sporty, the coupe would most likely hit home the Prius’ strongest selling point – fuel economy. If the reports are to be believed, the Prius Coupe would be capable of such impressive fuel economy as the rumoured 77km per every 4-liters of petrol. Mix that in with some irresistible Italian design and you have a winning formula.
