Not everyone is bailing out of the 2009 Detroit Auto Show. Toyota will be there in force with its all new third (fourth according to Toyota) generation Prius as well as the new Lexus HS250h. We haven't seen the full press conference schedule yet, but Toyota just sent out a note to let us know that its big show will take place on Monday Jan. 12, 2009 at 11:30 am to reveal the new Prius. The updated hybrid synergy drive is expected to yield both better performance and mileage. It will be interesting to see what the hybrid pioneers come up with in the way of driver information displays, to counter Ford's SmartGauge and Honda's EcoAssist on the new Insight. The Insight will be making its debut the day before the Prius and we'll have full coverage along with driving impressions of that one. Stay tuned, for we live in very interesting times.
