This is for the new 2006 model, but the surprising thing for me is
that the 2005 model sold in Italy -- and the rest of Europe, I think --
has no rear drum brakes but rear disc brakes.
Just visit

http://www.toyota.it/toyota/gamma/prius/caratteristiche/index.html

FRENI
Anteriori: Disco, autoventilanti
Posteriori: Disco
Controllo frenata: ABS + EBD + BA
(Translation:
BRAKES
Front: Disk, ventilated
Rear: Disk
Braking controls: ABS + EBD + BA)

and compare to

http://www.toyota.com/prius/specs.html

Brakes
Power-assisted ventilated front disc/rear drum with Anti-lock Brake System
(ABS) and integrated regenerative braking

Just to clear any doubt I personally checked my Prius: front and rear disk
brakes.
