Prius have been steadily shipping to the US. Problem is there's more demand than the current speed of production. (Rumor is the battery production isn't increasing, but it's just rumor.)

Sales of Prius units by month for this year:

Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc. Retail Sales (includes fleet and
Hawaii) of Prius:

No real hold-up that I can see on the production side - shipments have been steady and slowly increasing.

I heard the bottle-neck is in supplies of the little yellow bulbs that light up the snowflake warning light to tell me it's FREEKIN COLD OUTSIDE. I would be happy to donate one so you can get your car earlier. That's the last complaint (probably) you will read from me on that stupid little light or the weather.

Ah, who am I kidding. 8)
