Prius Offroad allows your hybrid to go free-range

Hardcore 4x4 fans know that clearance is key. Without enough of it you won't get far at all. On the other hand Toyota Prius owners may not know, or maybe they do? American company, Prius Offroad, offers a solution for intrepid adventurers who can’t bear to be seen in anything less than a conspicuously enviro-friendly Prius. Perhaps it was inevitable. After a starring role replacing stretch limos on the red carpet at gala events, the only was was up for the humble Prius. Literally.

Lamborghini RAV4? Ferrari Prius? Toyotas transformed into Italian look-a-likes

They say imitation is the ultimate form of flattery, though we're not sure what Italian supercar makers Ferrari and Lamborghini would make of this lot. Japanese bodykit company Albermo has transformed the new Toyota RAV4 into a pretend Lamborghini Urus, and the current generation Toyota Prius into a Ferrari of some kind. The ‘XR51’ bodykit (shown above) fits a Lamborghini Urus SUV inspired front bumper onto the current fifth generation Toyota RAV4.

Toyota Australia tracking steady path to zero emissions

Australia's runaway market leader Toyota doesn’t offer a fully-electric car, but its role in reducing emissions is a big one thanks to its hybrid rollout. This is the argument of its vice-president of sales and marketing Sean Hanley, who last week reaffirmed a goal to grow sales of its petrol-electric hybrids from a record 28,000 last year to 40,000 this year. That's equivalent to about 20 per cent of its total expected sales, or nearly one-third of its projected passenger and SUV sales.

Toyota Prius, Prius V recalled

Toyota has re-recalled a batch of Prius and Prius V hybrids, over concerns the fix provided to the power management ECU on both models wasn't sufficient first-time around. According to the company, affected vehicles are fitted with faulty power management ECU software. In the event of an issue, it's meant to put the car in a 'fail-safe mode' and illuminate the relevant warning lights, along with flashing a warning message on the in-dash display.
