At last week’s Detroit Auto Show, Toyota announced the new 2010 Toyota Prius and it looks like they’ve got a winner there.

The new Hybrid is roomier, more efficient and faster than its predecessor. In fact, the hybrid will now go from zero to 60 in less than 10 seconds. Those aren’t sports car numbers, but it will get you back and forth to the organic farmer’s market a whole lot quicker.

The car will be available come spring and the company estimates that it will sell about 180,000 of them in the car’s first year on the market. The third generation Prius has a larger 1.8 liter engine and gets 50 mpg city and 46 mpg on the highway.
