    Toyota's new Prius model may not arrive for a year - Yahoo! Finance
    Some interesting figures that the Reuters 25K Japan pre-orders article didn't mention.
    Oh no... the article creates some confusion by citing Japanese 10-15 cycle numbers and converting that to US mpg.

    article makes no sense at all when it comes to production or sales...

    2000 for NA and 2000 for EU? 2000 for NA is very low that suggests high price... 2000 for EU is very high that suggests low price.

    and 25000 orders received is way too high for Japan if those production and plans are to believe.

    So another article says:
    Japan: 3k/month
    USA: 2k/month
    EU: 2k/month

    with 25k orders received for Japan already...
