Toyota Raises Prius Price
(2008-07-25)
(wgvu) - TORRANCE, Calif. (AP) - Toyota is raising the U.S. price of its
Prius hybrid by $500 for the 2009 model.
Toyota Motor Corp.'s U.S. sales unit said Friday that the Prius'
suggested retail price will rise 2.2 percent. Base prices will
range from $22,000 for the standard Prius to $24,270 for a touring
model.
U.S. Prius sales have recently fallen because Toyota has failed
to keep up with demand for the car, which gets a combined 46 miles
per gallon.
The Japanese automaker also announced new prices for a dozen
other Toyota and Scion models, with an average increase of $181.
Toyota's Lexus luxury nameplate announced higher prices for four
vehicles.
