    Well, I am back.
    Needless to say it's been a weird year! :: koff ::
    But - there's no stoppin' us now!
    No fanfare here - just great deals and lots of inventory in and out of here on all Prius, especially Prime.

    My very first Prime arriving is a red/black PREMIUM (middle of the road model) ... and soon thereafter, I have the following coming:

    Base
    Blue Magnetism/black

    Premium:
    gray/black
    blue magnetism/gray
    blue magnetism/gray

    ADVANCED
    Titanium glow/black - AT package
    Red/black - AT package
    Blue magnetism/gray - AT package (pre-sold)

    Do not have pricing/MSRP yet, but it will end up here soon in this post.
    I'll have better visibility to these cars' arrival times soon. The 4 attachments are EXAMPLES of equipment and standard features.

    So will all dealerships get some around that time period or just California?

    Thanks. Carson is really close to me too! Would love to know when you expect the Advance in magnetic gray metallic.

    Thanks, Dianne. Calling dibs on the Blue Advanced, but you knew that. Is there a list somewhere of the descriptions of the dealer installed options? The 2 letter abbreviations don't mean too much to me. But I do want the paint protection (not the film) and mats, at least.
    Also, I'm not seeing what the 'AT' package offers in addition to the regular Advanced.

    Thanks, Tony

    Is there any wiggle space no the price or are the first few units (depending on demand) usually MSRP.

    TTait, those are factory installed options - not dealer installed. FYI.
    The descriptions I sent have details after them. Each 2 letter code has a description in that email. FYI

    Not even a guess. Realistically, I'd venture a guess that once your dealership locally gets one, they should call you.

    Since there's a pretty big rumbling around about the new green HOV decals in CA and a pretty large tax incentive thru year-end, my preference for my first few allocations of cars is to sell them locally, in California. That's our biggest demand. Not opposed to selling out of state eventually. But, since I can't lease or finance out of state, it'd have to be a cash deal.

    Awesome, thanks for the info! Wish I was a little closer to Cali.

    Prime models have a 15" alloy with the plastic wheel cover. I do not know what the 15" upgrade wheel will look like, but on a regular 2016 or 2017 Prius it's $900+ and looks like this attachment.
    Console cover should look like the attachment.
    Without that $200 center console/shifter panel cover, see the 3rd attachment that's bright white shiny plastic.

    It's expected that these will qualify for HOV decals soon, and whether I will be able to pre-order them as we did in years gone by is still up in the air.

    Can you tell me about "available" Predictive Efficient Drive? Is it available as an extra cost option, and which models have it as standard?
