Donald V. Esmond Senior Vice President Toyota (TMS) on Driving the Nation

Donald V. Esmond Senior Vice President Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., and Warren Brown from the Washington Post join me in the Swagger Wagon concept from SEMA. Esmond doesn’t think Toyota will be making it.

The next generation of the Prius is coming out, with a family of Prii to follow, including a Prius SUV/van type thing and a full electric Prius.

Is Toyota following the Chevy Volt or is Volt following the Prius?
