An industry in crisis rolls out its latest weapons as some of the industry's biggest names fight for survival.
Hybrid sales have fallen along with gas prices, but you can count on gas prices rising again before too long. The Prius, all by itself, owns half the hybrid market so Toyota needs to be ready.

The redesigned 2010 Prius will manage combined city and highway fuel economy of about 50 miles per gallon, according to Toyota. That's four mpg better than the current Prius.

(Comment: It looks fantastic, but they have to come up with much better customer value to regain market share and get out of trouble!)
