We can barely keep up with the demand at our Toyota dealership for any of the Prius models. Their dependability and value are second-to-none, and the public has quickly learned this.

The Toyota Prius has been an immensely popular vehicle since its worldwide introduction in 1998. Today it is the third most popular car in the world, having sold over 2.6 million units worldwide in the first half of 2012 alone. Toyota released more options for consumers in 2011 with the addition of the Prius c and Prius v, and in 2012 added the Prius Plug-in Hybrid.

The original Prius became the first mass-produced hybrid vehicle, selling over a million cars worldwide by May 1998, according to Wikipedia.org. At Prestige Toyota and across the country, the popularity of the hybrid quickly caught on and has been growing steadily ever since. Steve Reedy, the General Sales Manager at Prestige Toyota, stated, “We can barely keep up with the demand at our Toyota dealership for any of the Prius models. Their dependability and value are second-to-none, and the public has quickly learned this.”

The Toyota Prius has risen to the upper echelon of popular vehicles to own and drive due to several factors, one of which would be the steady increase in gas prices. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, gas prices rose from an affordable $1.14 per gallon in 1998 to a steep $3.58 today. With skyrocketing gas prices, it’s no wonder hybrid fanaticism has amplified. At an astounding 51/48mpg, and a price tag starting at $24,000, the Prius family is an outstanding option. The Prius Plug-in goes for a bit more at $32,000, however a consumer can save thousands of dollars per year without any need to fill the gas tank.

Northeast New Jersey consumers and nearby residents in New York City have generated steady and high demand for the Toyota Prius models, as reported by Prestige Toyota in Ramsey. Many commuters in these densely populated North-East metros have extended drive times and spend even longer amounts of time waiting in traffic. Prestige Toyota is on track to outsell its record breaking 2011 volumes of Prius Hybrids in 2012!

Prestige Toyota is currently offering special incentives to purchase or lease the 2012 Prius Plug-in Hybrid. Customers interested in a Prius lease or purchase should contact General Sales Manager Steve Reedy at 888-356-2136, or visit the dealership at its Ramsey, New Jersey location. The company’s Prius inventory is viewable on the company website and updated daily.
