Detroit-Bound: Toyota Video Gives Quick Peek of Prius MPV

If you don’t believe skateboards and the Toyota Prius are a natural mix, we have a Japanese automaker that thinks otherwise. Fresh off the YouTube channels, this video teases the inbound Prius MPV in a very subtle way.

Deep into video, which includes pro skateboarder Bob Burnquist, we see the Brazilian-American padding up for another run in the rear cargo hold of the Prius MPV. Though we only see it in the open position, the MPV’s hatch lid is definitely affixed at a higher roof point compared to the standard Prius, and that’ll help accommodate extra interior volume. How much exactly? We’ll have to wait till next year to find out at the Detroit Auto Show.

From the billboard teaser we found earlier, we can already see the Prius MPV roofline rides at a greater height. And looking from the outside in, we also catch a glimpse of the rear quarter panel glass, which is definitely larger and a dead giveaway for the MPV’s greater dimensions.

Take your own look at the Prius MPV in the video below, starting around the 1:20 mark.
