    The last time I saw a PRIME was about a month ago or longer at a charging station, and it was 2 days in a row. Also a white model.

    Just earlier at lunch, I came across another white one from Fremont Toyota (Prime #25xx). Wonder if the owner is here on this forum as well? :)

    If left alone long enough (on charge), I believe that is how you get a mini Prime.

    How do you know which P.Prime it was? Are VINs serial, perhaps?

    Which of those digits are serial, then? Is it just the 45678 part in your legend above, or the 12345678, or...?

    The Prime is in 3 levels ...Plus, Premium and Advanced. To the quick eye..the Plus has the 6 inch screen in the dash. The Premium has the 11 inch in the dash and no fog lights on the front and the Advanced has the 11 inch in the dash and the fog lights. I just got my Premium today in silver. Love it!

    All the numbers after the 11th character would indicate the production serial number.
