Prius Sets Nurburgring Lap Record!

So everyone knows that I have no love for the standard model of the Toyota Prius. It's appliance. No one that likes to drive, I mean truly enjoys driving, buys that car. I saw this article pop up on Autoblog and I have to admit, that's pretty cool.

I saw this too. I also read somewhere that an AWD will be coming out in the future.

It'll probably be like any of Toyota's other 4wd systems. A FWD car with the rear end kicking in if the computer thinks the car is going to explode or something. More of a security thing rather than a performance thing.

Toyota just went down a notch in my book... Running off the battery for most of the lap, not counting any of that energy consumed toward the mpg calculation, then only using a little fuel at the end, is total BS. 698 mpg? Please... What if they picked a shorter course and used no fuel at all? Yeah, ok, now let's divide the miles by zero gallons of fuel and get infinity miles per gallon! Pretty sure someone with a marketing degree was doing the math on that one...

If I need to get a vehicle that is AWD, hatch, and hybrid, I'd consider the xv crosstrek hybrid.
