Five Toyota and Lexus Hybrids Not Sold Here...That Should Be

Toyota recently held an event called the Hybrid World Tour in Detroit. The HWT gathered 20 of the 23 hybrid, electric, and hydrogen models it sells around the world to show where the electrically assisted driving technology is headed, and how the markets are moving in Europe, Asia, and North America. It also celebrated the cultural phenomenon the Prius has become in entertainment and popular culture--including "South Park." Also, it was close enough to a 15-year anniversary of the first Prius going on sale in Japan, so why not? We had the opportunity to drive almost all of them, many of which would make plenty of sense in the U.S. but aren't sold here for whatever reason. Here are our top five picks for what Toyota ought to bring to our shores from the event.
