    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.
