What was the Prius V? A station wagon, I guess?

Yep. Was underpowered as the vehicle was bigger and heavier than the Gen 3 Prius liftback but with identical net system power.

Also, IIRC, the US never got the 7-seat version of the V wagon w/the big NiMH pack in the back replaced with a smaller li-ion pack between the front seats.

It's a shame the V was never designed for a larger PHEV pack with charger.

Totally forgot about this until I saw some headlines today.
https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/2021 ... l-economy/ - 36 mpg combined is very good for something of this size. I didn't see the results up at https://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/Find.do ... =sbsSelect yet.
