Earlier today, Toyota released the first images of its 2012 Prius C compact hybrid hatchback that will arrive at U.S. dealers next year.

The 2012 Toyota Prius C will be the fourth member of the growing Prius family, joining the classic Prius five-door hatchback, the 2012 Prius V wagon, and the 2012 Prius Plug-In Hybrid that will go on sale early in 2012.

While static images are fine, you can often get a better feel for a car's looks seeing it on the road--so Toyota also provided a 1-minute teaser video of a Prius C protoype in action.

We think it looks like a neat little car, and of course that 52-mpg-or-higher projected gas mileage rating doesn't hurt either.

We're curious to know what you think about the upcoming Prius C. What questions do you have about the car after seeing the video clip?

  1. When can I get a plug-in C?

  2. This car looks very attractive. If priced right, this is bound to sell well. I just bought the new Prius v (the wagon variant) and its working out very well for my needs.

    Whats interesting to me is that both the Prius v and the Prius c seem to have better rear visibility than the regular hatchback.

  3. Looks modern without being weird. Lots of glass for good view. Waiting for pricing and mpg info, but I like what I see so far.
