Toyota’s Prius has been a best seller since its inception, with more and more people gaining more awareness about going green. Well, the world’s No. 1 automaker is now working on a larger version of its popular Prius hybrid which will also run on a new kind of battery – presumably one that lasts longer, packs in more juice and is lighter (that’s the way innovation is supposed to be anyways). This new Prius could be either a station wagon or SUV, and ought to hit the market by the end of 2010. This will also be the first vehicle from Toyota that comes with a lithium-ion battery. It is speculated that the new Prius will retail for around $22,000, but that’s about all the details that we are privy to at the moment.
