Have you heard the news? Toyota Motor Corp (TM) plans to install solar panels on its next-generation Prius hybrid cars, becoming the first major automaker to use solar power for a vehicle.
Now even though this makes me HAPPY, have you tried to purchase one of these? Yah, you're a 6-8 month waiting list. Geez, you would like you signed up for the lastest limited sports car, not a mass produced vehicle. Popularity in this little hybrid is at an all time high with gas prices being what they are.
Question: If worldwide cumulative sales of the Toyota Prius have already crossed 1 million why wouldn't you think Toyota would be ANOTHER (just 1 in Japan) dedicated Prius plant? Don't they want to make money?
