Bob Burnquist and the Toyota Prius MPV – Click above to watch video after the jump

Toyota is set to whip the sheets off of the newest addition to the Prius line at the next Detroit Auto Show. Designed to be a larger, more family-friendly hybrid, the Prius MPV is supposed to serve up as much as 50 percent more space without sacrificing the vehicle's now legendary fuel economy. In order to build a little buzz about the new battery-operated people hauler, Toyota has enlisted the help of skateboarding guru Ben Burnquist. Burnquist has a long history with the sustainability movement – making use of environmentally-friendly materials in everything from his boards to his ramps and home.

The video after the jump gives us a quick glimpse at the interior of the bigger Prius from the rear hatch as Burnquist suits up for a stint on his board, but otherwise, Toyota has done a smart job of keeping the vehicle tucked away and wrapped up in a black sheet. That means that we'll have to wait until early January to see the full monty like the rest of the world. Hit the jump to take a look for yourself.
