Sales of the all-new Toyota Prius c subcompact hybrid began on March 12th. Today is only March 16th, and already Toyota is reporting that the company has sold 1,201 of them – in three days. Undoubtedly, the major contributing factor to the Prius c’s overwhelming popularity is the ascent of fuel prices. With the average price of regular unleaded hovering between $3.89 in St. Louis (it’s around $4.09 here in Alton, though), combined with the Prius c’s starting price of just under $19,000, it’s hard not to talk yourself into purchasing one of these. We had one in Magnetic Gray Metallic, but it sold very quickly – just as we expected.
Given the sales velocity of the 2012 Toyota Prius c, we don’t expect them to last very long on our lot. If you are looking for something affordable that gets a combined 50 mpg figure, you should seriously consider a Prius c. We urge you to come into Mungenast Alton Toyota-Scion to reserve yours as soon as possible.
