Discussion in 'Toyota Prius Plug-in' started by floung, Apr 28, 2012.
I just put a deposit and got an unofficial delivery date early June of this year of course.
So basically pricing & packaging won't be out til June. At least we have a narrower time frame rather than "later in 2012". I don't know why they're so hesistant about releasing a launch date.
That's great,Your going to love your PIP's
So you put down a deposit for a car that you don't know the price of or how the packages will be laid out? How much is this deposit and is it refundable?
Hi guys, it seems that a lot of things will be released to CDN dealers in the upcoming weeks...promo stuff, data, courses etc. My salesperson went to the pip course last week. This is going to be a soft lauch, not much vehicles in the first months, allocation based on Hybrid sales per dlr. Same as Prius C. In Canada almost all the Prius C are sold and now you have to order them.
As for the deposit
1-I am protected by the law for full refund and it hapened to me a few years ago for a motorcycle and I got my deposit back a few weeks later.
2-It is written on my contract subject to acceptation of the price.
3- I will pick-up a regular Prius 26k CDN if let's say the CDN pip price is 36k. I expect it at 33-34.
4-Maybe it is a salespitch but my salesperson is confident to sell all his pip allocation within a few months...same as the Prius C. Even the regular Prius sell well in Canada there is only 3 on his lot and he is a medium size dlr. He is also a older experienced salesperson that does have a lot of be back customers he even wanted me to call back next week before puting a deposit for package and colour availability. You see this is the kind of salesperson I like, no pressure, confidence on himself, knowledge of the finance and his products, like he said to me: I like selling because if you inform well the customer you are going to get back the favor by a sale.
My deposit is only $500 but he assured me that I am going to be the first one to get one from his dlr.
I am also eligible for my $5000 rebate from my jurisdiction.
If you get the same infos about the timeframe from your dlr share with us.:welcome:
QC Prius phv 5092.40$
Do we get anything from the federal?
You have to be a resident to file for a claim, right? Since I'm in MB, I had hoped I can get one in Ontario, which also has up to a $5000 rebate (I think), and ship it home.
I am sure that there is no loophole, in Qc it must be reported on your taxes and it is linked to your prov of residence. I am sure that Ontario has a similar way to track your official address...remember it is all linked now, dmv, permits, dl, tax, fed and prov are exchanging infos.
Stange, I leave in Qc, I was told it is 5092.40$ minus both taxes = net credit is 4,429.14$
and this is an instant rebate, just need to download & complete a form on the provincial web site. I was also offered the possibility to put a small deposit to be the first at this dealership. I was told information about the Prius PHV, price, available color and options would be made available in July-August timeframe. First delivery in the October-November timeframe, but it could also be later.
I double checked with my rep and the qc govt rebate is not calculated same as a manufacturer rebate, your rep is mistaken it with all the current manufacturer rebates currently avail for the Venza, Corolla etc
As for the availability I trust my rep (fingers crossed) since he has been with the dealer for a while and he has been told at the Toyota university pip course June for the first deliveries to CDN dlrs. I am enjoying my last month without a car pmt....
Great, June is perfect for me.
Could you please provide the dealership name, I will be placing my order with them ? Thanks.
Looks like rebate for Ontario end march of 2012
