Toyota, already the world leader in hybrid car sales, plans on increasing the number of Prius models in an effort to reach their ambitious goal of selling 1 million hybrids within ten years. The new model will be a station wagon and will have a rear seat large enough to fit three adults. These changes are being made so that delivery and taxi fleets will have even more reason to choose the fuel-efficient alternative over other suitable models.

Toyota has already announced that their next-generation Prius sedan will go on sale in 2009, and the wagon version should be ready two years later in 2011.
