Yeah... and there was another article recently where Toyota execs noted that the HiHy and RX400 weren't meeting sales expectations, which probably means that if you give the average buyer a choice between a conventional model and a hybrid model that costs 4.5K more and offers a few extra MPG, they're gonna go conventional. Think about it, if they offered a 1.5L Prius without HSD that got corolla milage and sold for 15K, it would probably outsell the hybrid Prius.hyperion said:Interesting desire. Maybe the bean counters can come up with something. It does seem as though the cost of the synergy system is still holding at $4500.00
No no.. not over invoice, but over MSRP. MSRP is the sticker, and includes the prep and destination. Some dealers are charging more than the "price tag" on the window, which is usually several thousand more than invoice price.cgraham said:Dan, when you say dealers should not sell over MSRP, do you expect that destination, dealer prep charges (I forget Toyota's exact terminology) will be extra or absorbed by MSRP?
