    Google "prius production videos" (or similar) for some interesting insight to production techniques.

    If you're ever in Toyota City, you can tour the Tsutsumi plant, maybe you'll see some Primes being built. I've always wanted to go, myself!

    Years ago we went with a group from here to tour the Toyota plant in Georgetown,Ky. Besides being a Ton of Fun the tour of the plant was really fascinating. It was a great learning experience and a really fun trip. If anybody has a chance to tour the plant I highly recommend it.

    Great, thanks for the information. More to add to my research.

    Thinking of looking for a 2017 base in Canada

    The base model in Canada uses an improved version of the NiMH battery in my 2010. (Touring and Tech models use a new Li-Ion battery)
