Here is the Prius sales history for the US2000 5,5622001 15,5562002 20,1192003 24,627 (model switchover mid year)2004 53,9912005 107,8972006 106,971Demand was high last year in the US due to high gas prices and the big tax credit. Toyota may have shifted production to have a mix of more US models than those for other countries, thus giving more growth to the US. In addition, in the last year Toyota started selling the hybrid Camry and sales of the Lexus and Toyota hybrid SUVs was just getting started in 2005. Surely the Camry hybrid took some sales from the Prius.Total Toyota/Lexus hybrid sales for 2006 was ~191K units...there is no real drop in "hybrid" sales, just more choices now.Mike
