    The 2020 has the trim level on the back, opposite the "Prius Prime". The 2019 does not have any lettering for the trim level.

    I suspect this is true for US market Primes only.

    I have yet to see any Canadian 2020 models with any trim badging at all. In fact, I actually modded my 2020 the same way I did my 2018 with the customary JDM badge (the Plug-in Hybrid which is almost identical to the ones on the front fenders).

    Good to know. Man, 2017 seems like so long ago now. But I still love the car. Only 30,000 miles so far and driving.

    Seen 2 near Houston in the last week:

    - Red Prime parked at Texas Ren Fest parking last Saturday (row 11/12-ish just off the walkway to the main gate)
    - White Prime still with dealer tags on it headed south near I-59/Sugar Land this morning

    I just saw one of the two (I think) that are near me. Both are white. I was on the way home from work and it was headed the opposite direction.

    Wow! Saw another one today and got to talk to the owners. They LOVE it. It's a white Advanced or Limited. They just got it in June, but I didn't ask if it was new. They said they sure like not buying gas all the time.

    I usually mention it to Prius drivers, but these folks didn't look or talk like the kind of people who would enjoy this stuff. They seemed frail enough that I was actually a little surprised that they were still driving.

    Lots of sightings today.

    One black, two reds, one silver and three whites. Most were 2020s.

    And to finish the day, one more grey and one more white.

    And that's in addition to the handful of Prii, Prius c (not counting car share since there are many of those around), 2 or 3 Prius v's, a Clarity, a 2G Volt, an Outlander PHEV, two 3G HAHs, one 2 HCH, 1 UX250h and 20 odd Teslas of all 3 models.

    I saw a bright, electric blue one last week in Golden Valley, MN. I think it's one of the first I've seen "in the wild" and not sitting on a dealership lot. Still have only seen 2-3 regular Prii as well.
