Very interesting move. I guess this is Toyota reacting to the Chevy volt and the Nissan leaf. Both rechargable cars unlike the Prius.

Not quite sure what Toyota is looking to gain besides a PR move to distract the public from all the recent recalls. Toyota has been testing fully electric Prius' in Cali, not to mention other alternative fuels like hydrogen for a couple years now. It's not like Tesla has great engineers or innovative ideas. Besides, Elon Musk seems like a douchebag.

Elon Musk seems like a douchebag.

With a last name like Musk I wonder if he smells like one too?

Yea, but last I read the volt and leaf dont even get near the mileage as tesla out of a charge. For the volt to match up you have to use gas.
