    PHEV supports Alberta dinojuice AND natural gas energy.

    I believe all the rav4 primes are allocated to provinces with provincial subsidies, which is why we’re getting shafted. Was similar story when I was looking at Pacifica hybrid, alberta got very few allocations.

    Our equalization is going to pay for eastern RAV4 primes!

    Curses!

    Ironically, total price of a RAV4 prime is still more in those provinces, even with the incentives. So what's the point of only allocating them there?

    Anytime I see this thread pop up I get mad. I think its the title. I hate the title.

    Or maybe I'm just a gas guzzling Albertan.
    So do I. I also don't actually know what phev stands for and I won't Google it or read page 1 either.

    Rebate aside, I believe BC and QC has California style mandate. You don't sell enough batteries vehicles, you will have to buy credits.

    Right now I believe only Prairies Provinces and Ontario doesn't have any rebate for PHEV/BEV.

    You'll be even more mad when you learn that it stands for "Plug-in Hybrid-Electric Vehicle". Should be PHV or PIHEV. The acronym is messed up.

    Since I may be loosing my mind... Looking at the lower cost subcompacts around - can't help but notice how many gen1 Prius's are much cheaper than the Yaris/echo options (yeah I still prefer Toyota).

    Out of curiosity, I was looking at replacement battery packs - since I'd assume that's the primary issue... And those are only 2k$. It's intriguing as an option since that's guaranteed access to those hov lanes.

    Any major issues with the original Prius's that I should be aware of?

    Very reliable, just awful to drive and look stupid. That's why they are cheap.

    Aren’t the seats made of canola oil or some nonsense?

    I mean look at the spark/Aveo/wave/bolt and the Yaris and echo - none of them are going to make anyone happy.. so it's largely a hold your nose and pick the least worst option.

    I remember them being cloth seats. Don’t think nonsensical materials marketing was a thing till the last couple of years.

    Drive them all. They are all bad in a few ways, but the Prius is bad in an additional different way.

    Real answer is Honda fit, but those are good so they hold thier value.

    Yeah I've tried to make myself like a fit - but I don't fit in a fit... Has been a consistent problem for me with Hondas.

    Partly why micra isn't on the list.

    OmG the Aveo... Is that still a thing? I've never ever been in a car that immediately infuriated me simultaneously, on so many fronts like the Aveo. So terrible in every way.
    Better than a Jeep Patriot.
