I found an article online that i know will end lots of questions.

Toyota Motor said Monday it will raise the price of the 2005 Prius gas-electric hybrid by nearly 3 percent, although an incentive program will offset most of the additional cost. The manufacturer's suggested retail price for the Prius has been set at $20,875, up $580 from a year ago. The 2005 model goes on sale Sept. 14.

WHAT'S WITH THE $700 REBATE CHECK???? If the 2005 will be $580 higher than the 2003-2004 (til end of March 2004), how do they arrive at the $700 coupon? And where, pray tell, does one go to get this coupon-- that you said TOYOTA themselves sent to you post haste????? Toyota never does anything involving MONEY fast.....

Please explain the $700 coupon in MORE DETAIL, PLEASE for everyone on the forum. We are all waiting eagerly for your reply. Thanks! :)

The 2005 Prius is actually $400 more than the 2004 models because $180 of the $580 is for the rear wiper, which is now standard equipment. In other words, all the option packages are $180 less because they have no rear wiper.

In addition to the $400 increase for the 2005 models, the 2004s had a $300 increase in the middle of 2004. So if you got on the waiting list before 3/10/04 you can get a $700 rebate to compensate for these increases.

$700 Coupon

The coupon is being mailed to those, like myself, who ordered a 2004 Prius prior to March 2004 when they raised the price $300. The coupon is to cover the $300 increase on the 2004 plus the $580 increase for the 2005. The letter indicates that the 2005 has the added standard feature of intermittent rear wipers valued at $180. Ergo, $300+$580-$180=$700, the amount of the certificate. So the net effect is to get your Prius for the price quoted prior to March 2004. Also, if you are tired of waiting, you can use the coupon ($700) towards the purchase of any new 2004 or 2005 Toyota model.

Peace

Jim
