    Doesn't matter how cool it is if you can't get one. I tried for 6 months to get a Prius and finally had to settle for a Camry Hybrid. I want a Prius with all the bells and whistles but don't want pimpmobile tires. Here is a video on their future motor plans.

    What about one foot driving and adjustable regen? I do mostly highway driving now, some it rather high speed, and adjustable regen instead of friction braking would be nice.

    May we assume the 5th generation will be similar to previous Prii regarding regeneration tendencies, i.e., light regeneration if you get off both pedals, none (freewheeling) if you depress the accelerator slightly, and regeneration before friction braking if you step on the brake pedal?
    Or will there be other related options like "one-foot driving," or zero regeneration when you're off the accelerator?

    Off topic, but here's the way it should be done. This channel has some seriously good videos on AEV's.

    I don't see Toyota adding parts like paddle shifters, or even major software changes, to allow regen control on the Prime different from the noplug Prius. Unless, they've done such with the Rav4 Prime, the PP will have the same behavior with the same controls as the Prius.

    B will be different, like with the current Prime, because there is a bigger battery to soak up regen energy. It will increase foot off pedals regen while there is empty battery capacity before increasing engine braking.

    Edit to add:
    The Camry hybrid can select levels of B, which should work out to levels of regen with a plug in. However, the hybrid uses the same shifter with selectable gears as the ICE. So it has the hardware to support the selection of braking levels in place. If the new Prius is using a shifter like past generations, it won't. Maybe the Rav4 Prime has it.
