“The Bay Area is home to hundreds of thousands of proud Toyota Prius owners, and we wanted to pay homage to the Toyota Prius this Earth Day,” said Pete Carey, vice president and general manager for Toyota Motor Sales. “We wanted to celebrate this revolutionary vehicle and the folks behind the wheel who’ve always been our early-adopters, thinking bigger about their carbon footprint and environmental impact.”
