Ed La Rocque, National Small Car Marketing Manager for Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. talked to me about the changes in the 2010 Toyota Prius.

The Prius will eventually have a lithium-ion battery.

There are over one million Prius’ on the road today, worldwide, that have NiMH batteries. What happens to the Prius’ that have been sold for the last ten years with a Nickel Metal Hydride battery?

Is the 2010 Toyota Prius able to take a lithium-ion battery in future years, even though it has a Nickel Metal Hydride currently?
