For whatever reason (earthquake/tsunami would be my guess), the 2012 Prius was not released 'on time,' they only became available in the US recently. So 2011 Prius production continued much later than a normal model year. Recent roll out of the new PriusV and newer PriusC may have also delayed production of the regular 2012 Prius. Probably more than anyone wanted to know...

Cool. I might get me one of those in another decade or so.

Well, first there was that little public-relations issue with the jammed accelerator pedals, and then there was that pesky earthquake/tsunami wreaking havoc on the parts logistics chain...
