Of course, millions of people didn’t care about that in the slightest (Toyota’s sold 3.5 million Priuses), and simply appreciated the Prius because it let them get 45 or 50 miles to the gallon without a thought while encouraging a relaxed rate of progress – maddening to any driver stuck behind a slow-moving Prius on the road.
