    There are some here in Quebec, but the 2019 models are only on order right now. Reportedly, they will not arrive until first week of March 2019.

    Check out Cars.com a search for 2018 Prime . . . 1,908 advertised there yesterday . . . down from 2,400 in October . . . could be some duplicate ads

    2019 inbound at my dealer.

    Two questions:
    1. How is the advanced version different?
    2. Is the MPG really as bad as the other thread said?

    No point in buying one if it gets worse MPG.

    2019 is a carryover model. (Canada gets Moonstone and Classic Silver as new options but that's about it)

    Prime Advanced adds:

    • Blind Spot Monitor (BSM)
    • Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)
    • Rain-Sensing Wipers
    • 10-Speaker JBL GreenEdge Audio
    • Intelligent Clearance Sonar (ICS)
    • Simple Intelligent Parking Assist (S-IPA)
    • LED Foglights
    • LED Clearance Lights
    • Heated Steering Wheel
    • Auto-Dimming Mirror w/ Homelink
    • Roller-Type Cargo Cover
    • Prime Apps that include Charging Map (also available on Premium) Remote Climate, Vehicle Finder, Charge Management, Eco Dashboard
    • Safety Connect
    • Colour Head-Up Display with Speedometer, Hybrid System Indicator, Route Guidance, Vehicle Alerts (like radar cruise or PCS)

    All Prius Prime are rated the same.

    I called the local dealer this morning (Toyota Sunnyvale). They were also out of stock - but the salesperson told me they have a shipment of 2019 Prius Prime Premium coming on Feb 20, with the Advanced ones maybe a week earlier.

    I thought the guy just got the Prime vs regular Prius confused, but he did say "premium" and "advanced" which aren't trim levels for the hybrid Prius...

    2019 manual is online btw. Basically identical to last year's manual - no surprises here.

    Toyota has a $1,500 rebate on the 2018 Prime, so there really could be some great deals if you can get any in stock. (Sadly, most of the 2018 stock in my area seems to have weird issues)

    My condolences for being in a region with such as small rebate. Most other areas had the rebate at $3000-$4000 several months ago.

    One car being sold as "new" was previously purchased, driven for 1,300 miles, then returned for some reason. Dealer says it was a financing disagreement & there's nothing wrong with the car, but who knows.
