Happy to finally see it!

And what it seems to be a nice render:

If the bZ sedan is now seen on the (Chinese) roads, does that mean that we should expect introduction soon -- about a year or two?

The lease on my Camry Hybrid expires in December 2023 and I am already wondering if I can get a new PHEV or EV, or if I should hold on to the Camry a bit longer.

The RX might give us a hint of which direction Toyota is internally targeting as their path forward for their next generation of hybrids.

The big thing in recent times for Toyota has been depairing the v6 NA, and giving everyone a Lithium ion based traction battery. I assume folks are looking for electric range out of the P/HEV in the economy segment, while luxury buyers are looking for more power.

Spyshot has shorter front overhang than render.

Looks good, better than Tesla 3.

It does look like a good looking Prius in concept.

With the Prius being a "sedan" and being born before the CUV/SUV craze, the Prius now is 'dead', mostly because of its form factor (not CUV), so it there even a new one? Now that any Toyota is HEV and PHEV, the Prius has no purpose. And BEVs have bZ nomenclature.

New Prius is expected mid 2023 as a 4 door coupe and a change in direction as sportier alternative to Corolla hybrid.

Prius is going to be a sporty car? How will it shake the Prius stigma off? Maybe the contrary, finally the Prius everybody wanted.

Shape looks a lot like i4. part sedan, part coupe, part tall/lifted.
