Since the new models use essentially the same "synergy drive" (the source of most of the noise, I'm told) as the 2nd-generation models, you may be able to use what has been learned on the 2003+ Prius.  A member of the PAPA System has dug into this extensively, as I recall, although I believe the result was the need for a complex custom shielding arrangement.  You might ask Cecil WD6FZA  if he either remembers who it is or will post a PAPASYS message for you.

  Off hand I don't know what kind of RFI resources might be on the ARRL 
  Web but maybe search there....
  Next, I would email the RFI folks at ARRL to see if they have had any 
  feedback from other members.  Then there is the RFI reflector, maybe 
  something there in the archives-- or post a new question.
