Prius Whoops Some Ass

If there's anyone left who still thinks hybrid cars are just a fad, you need to rethink: the Prius was one of America's best-selling vehicles in 2007. That's vehicles, not just hybrids. Toyota sold 181,221 of the gas-electric hatchbacks. That's more than the entire Acura or Mercury lineups, and the model was nipping on all of Buick's heels. The Prius also outsold the Chevrolet Tahoe, the Toyota Tacoma, the Honda Odyssey, every Jeep, every Chrysler, every Dodge (except Ram) and every Ford but the F-series. No wonder Maximum Bob is trying to jump onto the hybrid bandwagon so fast, after pooh-poohing hybrids for so long. Only problem is that train left the station a long time ago, GM and Co. will have to run mighty fast to catch it.

I have to live with people’s preconceived notions about me because of what I drive, now so do you. Two wrongs make a right. Nice...
Pretty much sums up the problem. People who judge people based on their choice of vehicle is pretty stupid and weird.
In my area,which is an area of northern California which tends to start trends, Prius is the #1 seller among cars. Even ahead of camry and accord.
