    PriusChat members,

    Just wanted to let you all know that I'm headed out on maternity leave for a few months so I won't be responding to PC threads/PMs. That said, I wanted to ensure proper introductions to our team so that if you see their names replying, you know who they are.

    Natalya Edwards works with me on Prius, Prius v and Prius Plug-in. Angie White is the product manager for Prius c and RAV4 EV and Stacey Peterson works with her on those two products. You may see PriusChat responses from any of them in the future. They hope to see/meet many of you at the To Go Before event in June in CA.

    Best wishes for a great summer,

    Eric

    Welcome back Erica, and hello to the new team members!
