Well, it sounds like it would hurt mpg as there would be more mass and
machinery to get in motion and more overall weight too. I'd like to see the
Prius remain an optimized mpg-focused design.

You're just in time to see Toyota take next year's Prius and add a few
hundred pounds of Lexus options to it, in addition to several thousand
dollars of price tag.
Yes, the Lexus dedicated hybrid--that gets crummy mileage due to the
mass of goodies bolted to it.
