Finally, Prius is coming to Taiwan. We get to take part in the global environment saving efforts by buying friendly cars. I did price it, it’s about NT$1.2 million for the car, so it’s about double the conventional price.
The fuel savings at the moment won’t pay off the car within a reasonable time, as far as I can work out. But with a higher retail price, possibly you won’t lose a lot of money on its resale.
I’m curious to know why the retail price in Taiwan is nearly 50% higher than in the US for the base models. It’s weird.
