Is The Auris Hsd Hv Battery The Same As Prius?

Recommended Posts

As the title suggests - is the HV Battery in the Auris HSD the same as the Prius - Nickle Metal Hydride (which is what I always assumed) or is it acutally lithium ion like the new plug in Prius but also as shown on the Auris HSD page on Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toyota_Auris

Is this just a Wiki mistake or have Toyota used a lithium ion HV Battery in the Auris due to its smaller size?

From the wiki page follow note 18 and that article is about PHEVs, I think some wires got crossed somewhere.

The PR blog on Toyota (see link below) believes that the Auris HSD has NiMH batteries
