    I confirmed today that the Prime will reach dealerships in November. A few dealerships in East Coast regions already have allocations complete with VIN #s.



    I have pricing, but can't release that information until October 3rd.

    ...wow I made a call for November on a post yesterday, as someone else said 30-Sept is the first date of manufacture. But I really thought 30-Sept was not happening...apparently it is.

    I'm not sure that allocations in the system are a direct reflection of when they'll arrive. West Coast may still get it first.

    Thank you. Been a busy few months, but I'm looking forward to getting active again on the forums (at least as active as I am on the backend every day! :) ).

    I understand that you cannot release pricing info till a certain date however I was wondering if I could squeeze some more information out of you? Such as would you happen to know the colors the Prime will be offered in, thanks.

    Thanks for the possible November release timeframe. I can only hope it will come out sooner on the west coast cause I need a car asap since my Prius C met with a early demise.

    Lol.

    @Danny will have the numbers for you on Oct 3.

    @TonyPSchaefer will have the tables like he did for Gen 4.

    I'll just be here answer questions like I've been doing for 11 years (holy crap it's been a long time).

    Also, I know nothing about pricing.

    Yeah, that's the plan. I've been backed up at home the last few days. I'll start putting that table together tonight and confirm with Danny what details can be put out now versus which are still under NDA. Just like with the Gen4, expect to see the full details as soon as the NDA is lifted.

    Other than being a Monday, is Oct. 3 significant in any other way? Shows?

    Paris Auto Show kicks off Oct. 1

    Oct. 3 is the first weekday, so a media blitz then makes sense.

    Just sent an email message to Dianne Whitmire at Carson Toyota to see if she can tell us when she will get inventory. Looks like she has not visited us on PriusChat in a few months.
