    So Toyota’s website wont let me "Build” a 2020 Prius Prime, saying it’s not available in my region yet (Southeat), but stay tuned. However, just about every local dealer’s website shows one or more 2020’s in their inventory, with photos and VINs. And one even has a Prime Advanced, which isn’t even listed on the Toyota website. (Toyota shows LE, XLE, and Limited only.)

    So naturally I’m wondering how is it in the dealers’ inventory if it’s not available?

    If it really is an Advanced it’s not a 2020 or vice versus.
    The 2020 equivalent of Advanced is “Limited”.

    The Toyota distributor for the Southeast is independent from corporate, and dictates what's available. Plenty here that live in the region go outside it for their Prius.

    As for what the dealers' sites, I wouldn't trust them. Just checked a dealer in NC, and the photos for a 2020 listing are of a 2019; only 2 seats in the rear. Maybe the dealer is getting one, and it isn't on the lot yet.

    I picked up a ‘20 Prime XLE in the Midwest over the weekend and had it delivered midweek. The dealership sold the only XLE they had 1 1/2 hrs before I showed up to test drive. Test drove the LE trim and looked at a standard Prius XLE for a sense of the trim. When the salesman did a locate there were only 4 XLE trim w/in 200 mi radius “on the ground” ie delivered to dealer lots. Depending on your regional prices it might make sense to shop nationwide and pay $750 for transport.
