    • Buy a Mirai and we'll loan you a Prius 4th gen until the hydrogen fuel station opens up.
    • Buy a Mirai and we'll give you a Scion . . . and you won't have to get a 10th grade Prius.
    • Sorry, we are all out of Prius but if you buy a Mirai we'll throw in a Scion with four Mirai cinder block tire savers.
    • We've change the spelling of Prius to Camry and here is one now.

    Now come on Bob, I'm trying to be good. Don't be egging us on - because we're a bunch of lemmings that'll follow you.

    PCers—


    Life throws some curve balls every now and then and Toyota moving to TX was one of those curve balls for me personally. It’s with a heavy heart that I need to bid you farewell as Erica from the Prius Team. I will now join you as just Erica the Prius owner and loyalist. It’s been an amazing time working on Prius since we began the 3rd Gen teaser with Prius Chat and established the Prius Team handle. It’s not an easy brand or company to leave but I’m glad I won’t have to leave the community. Thank you (especially to Danny and the amazing mods) for letting us/me be a part of this special place and know that the Prius brand is in great hands with Doug and team still here to carry out all that is to come for the Prius Family.


    I wish you all the best and will e-meet you again soon.


    Best,
    Erica

    From the bottom of our hearts, we all thank Erica for her tremendous contributions to the Prius brand over the past 7 years. She has been truly a pleasure to work with, and we wish her the absolute best of luck in her new adventures. I also know she holds a special place in her heart for PriusChat, so don't be surprised if you find her peeking in from time to time under a new handle...

    And fear not, the rest of Prius Team is still here, busily working to launch our 4th Generation baby. Lot's more good stuff to come! Stay tuned...

    Prius Team profile said 2008 Prius. Come on, we know you are driving the 2016 Gen4. :)

    So now, there is a job opening in Toyota at TX.

    Post mortem ; wasn't near as bad as we feared, eh? Dare I say - it was practically ok! . . . . if you can get past the notion that folks do burnouts & power slides w/out tripping the speed sensors

    I can't help but to speculate. Are the new Prius Ads the result of the new marketing team?

    I'm so glad we don't have to watch Prius commercials like we used to:

    PC-ers - I just wanted to drop you all a note to let you know there's still life in the ol' Prius Team account yet!

    My name is Casey, and I'm working for Doug and Nathan on the Prius and Mirai teams. I actually got to meet some of you at the New York Auto Show, if you remember. I'll be poking my head in around here now and then to let you all know about cool stuff and to pass your feedback along to the team. Please feel free to reach out, and forgive me if my response times are slow - I'm still getting up to speed! :D
