@rcracer11m No room for a rear engine It's got front and mid options. With the wheels so far to the corners of the car, there's a realistic amount of space for an engine between the rear axle and rear seats. Just not a huge engine.
@CamKerman If I were to make a Prius, I'd likely go for the iconic Prius 2. The Prius 4 is too "unique" to have anything else morphable into that shape, plus we have plenty of cars for the 2010s. The dead zones are the 50s, early 60s, 70s, and early 00s.
