Toyota Prius G's Is Geek Chic, but not in America

Once in a while, we like to show you a car that challenges your perception of the car world. We think this thing, the Prius G's, does a very good job of that. Not only can you not pronounce it's name, but it also doesn't make any sense. Prii are for eco people who eat at Wholefood in America, but over in Japan this was the best selling car of 2013.

It's so popular there that Toyota makes a few other version for people who want to stand out and are willing to spend a lot more. The Prius G's is a hot version of the most popular hybrid ever made. It's got a full body kit, larger alloy wheels, sports exhaust and a cool interior.

We’ll remind you that the Toyota Prius G’s starts at JPY2.84 million in Japan ( about $36,000). For that kind of money, you can get a whole lot of BMW or Mercedes in America, but then taxes are much higher in Japan, so sports hybrids make sense.

Check out the walkaround video below and tell us if this isn't the coolest Prius ever!

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
