Prius production in Mississippi

priusMississippi got a little cooler today. Toyota has announced that the company will begin producing the Prius in 2010 at the Toyota plant in Blue Springs. The world’s leading environmental car and first mass-produced hybrid electric vehicle is currently only being manufactured in Japan.

A quick look at the Prius Web site shows that the car is being marketed with the slogan “Prius for the people.” They start at around $21,500. The Camry, $19,000, and the Highlander, $27,500, is also offered as a hybrid on the site. To see a Prius photo gallery, click here.

Here’s The New York Times’ article on the subject.
