Lexus to Debut Prius Spinoff at Detroit Auto Show

August 11, 2008

TORRANCE, CA - Lexus will launch a small Prius-based hybrid hatch at next January’s Detroit autoshow, according to www.autospies.com. The new model is known internally as SAI but will be renamed before it goes on sale and will be based on the next generation Prius, also being shown for the first time in Detroit. The Lexus though will be a plusher, more comfort orientated model with unique and sleeker styling.

 

According to company sources, it will bear some similarities to Toyota’s Concept X shown at the Geneva motor show last March.
