Toyota Prius V price increase soon. Buy it, other hybrids, now?
A V hybrid price increase up to 1.5 percent
If you know you’re going to buy a new hybrid or electric car in the next couple of months, then you should buy it now. With gas prices set to climb through July, the hybrid supply situation could become a problem. And hybrid deals? Don’t expect any great deals on hybrid cars until well into Fall. Hybrid prices are probably about as good as they are going to be for some time.
And, if you’re thinking about a Toyota Prius V, then there’s an even greater reason to buy now. A Prius V price increase is on the way.
According to Toyota, the Prius V hybrid is one of 5 Toyota vehicles destined for a price increase of up to 1.5 percent, starting with vehicles being built in May.
If you’re not in a rush to buy a new hybrid car, then hold off until gasoline prices decline — if you believe prices are eventually going to come back down. If you don’t, then buy your hybrid as soon as possible.
