Geneva 2011: EU Toyota Prius+ MPV Gains Two More Seats Over its US Counterpart [Updated Gallery]

This week in Geneva Toyota revealed its European-market Prius + MPV, known stateside as the Prius V. Instead of five seats, the Euro Prius + will get seven seats when it debuts in early 2012. Also unlike its USDM counterpart, the Prius + gets a three middle row seats that fold individually (instead of our 60/40 split) and a 50/50 folding third-row seat.

The Prius + should burn approximately 5.9 liters / 100 km (using US combined city/highway figures) thanks to its hybrid power train and a drag coefficient of 0.29. It is also the first non-plug-in hybrid Toyota to use a lithium-ion battery pack and, like its Prius sibling, gets EV, ECO, and POWER driving modes.
