You know how they say someone should make a hybrid minivan? Well someone does and it's Toyota and the product in question is called the Estima. In fact, Toyota has been selling the gas-electric people mover in Japan for over a decade, putting the world's first hybrid minivan on sale in 2001. The Estima was redesigned in 2006 and the latest model is brand-new for 2013.

But not much has been said about using hybrid powertrains in minivans (a few things here and there, but that's it). Since soccer moms (and dads!) could surely use savings at the pump, a rumor on Carscoop comes as a nice surprise: Toyota is planning a minivan that uses the Prius platform. Toyota offers a few compact minivans in Japan and has a very competent compact-size minivan called the Vers
