    Toyota is taking the Prius v out on the road and they want you to come by and check it out for yourself. There won't be any test drives available, but you'll be able to poke around the car and check out those sweet reclining rear seats, as well as seeing how many bodies flowers you can fit in the expanded cargo area. Many locations and dates are listed below, but some of the cities do not have designated venues yet, so keep an eye on the forum thread below to stay up-to-date on the latest information from Toyota's Prius Team. And if you go, take lots of pics for the rest of us who aren't lucky enough to live in any of the tour cities Start Date End Date Venue Location Friday, February 04, 2011 Sunday, February 06, 2011 Best Buy 1236 Galleria Blvd., Roseville, CA-95678 Thursday, February 10, 2011 Sunday, February 13, 2011 Best Buy 9739 NE Cascades Pkwy., Portland, OR 97220 Thursday, February 17, 2011 Sunday, February 20, 2011 Borders 3000 184th St SW., Lynnwood, WA-980373 Thursday, February 17, 2011 Sunday, February 20, 2011 Shops at La Cantera 15900 La Cantera Pkwy., San Antonio, TX-78256 Thursday, March 03, 2011 Sunday, March 06, 2011 Whole Foods 2487 Park Avenue, Tustin, CA 92782 Thursday, March 03, 2011 Sunday, March 06, 2011 Rave Motion Theatres 1101 Melbourne Rd., Hurst, TX 76053 Thursday, March 10, 2011 Sunday, March 13, 2011 Cottonwood Mall 10000 Coors Blvd., Byp NW, Albuquerque, NM 87114 Thursday, March 10, 2011 Sunday, March 13, 2011 Jacksonville Landing 2 W Independent Dr., Jacksonville, FL 32202 NOTE: NOT ON MARCH 12th Saturday, March 12, 2011 Saturday, March 12, 2011 Jacksonville Farmer's Market 1810 West Beaver St., Jacksonville, FL 32209 Thursday, March 17, 2011 Sunday, March 20, 2011 Best Buy 17414 La Cantera Parkway, San Antonio, TX 78257 Saturday, March 19, 2011 Saturday, March 19, 2011 Pearl's Farmer's Market 200 E.

    Maybe it has something to do with proximity to the manufacturing facility there? I realize that's not where they make Prius, but...

    Don't worry, we'll spread the love. However, this time of year isn't so favorable for outdoor events in the Midwest and East coast. Unless you want to see how the Prius v looks under a pile of snow.

    Are there any specific hours for the events? I'm assuming the events will be staffed and we can get into the car to look around.

    Thanks Doug. This may be the first time I ever go the the Javitz Center auto show in in Manhattan this year. I'm sure the V will be there.

    Yes, what are the timings ? I'll be there in Lynnwood, wa. Incidentally close to where Volt test drives were.

    BTW, are there test drives as well ? At least can we sit in the car ... not a roped off event.

    For anyone who has been to the Prius v events already passed, were they staffed? Could people at least get inside and look around?

    I wonder if these locations are a reflection of Prius sales and popularity. I don't understand why Southern California doesn't have an event in the Orange County or San Diego area. There are BILLIONS of Prii down here in SoCal !!! There is an event in Los Angeles though. I guess I'll have to drive up to Los Angeles and load the atmosphere up with emissions, sitting in the parking lot highways of Los Angeles. :(

    For Los Angeles, it says "retail location." (a dealership)
    I thought they were going to rent out the Staples Center or the Colosseum for this event, but I guess not. ;)

    Retail Location = a dealership? Not necessarily . . . . but even worse, there's only THREE DAYS LEFT & not a hint of WHERE in the Los Angeles area that actually is. Makes plannnig kinda tough. Oh well, I'm certain I can find it ... after all . . . L.A. County is ONLY 4,083 square miles.

    Agreed, they're kind of waiting till the last minute on the upcoming ones. I'm waiting to find out Jacksonville next week (I actually can't believe they're coming here!). And since I live by the beach, if they go to a "retail location" in far west Jacksonville, it's only... an hour and 15 minutes away! Some planning might be helpful here Toyota people!

    I see your point ... it could be at a different type of "retail" location, such as a shopping mall.

    Regarding the location, have you tried contacting your friends at Prius Team?
