As most of the drivers of Bob product around here are geriatrics, the two are closely related.

I’ve only been to Portugal once, work conference In Lisbon around 12 years ago.

Sales are not looking good for the Prius Stateside.

They’re a fraction of what they were here. Bob only expects to sell 1000 facelifted ones in the UK, apparently.

Look at HSD sales in total, though. The biggest reason for fewer Prius sales is that Bob offers a hybrid option in almost every other model now. The Prius lost its USP years ago. But it’s still the best, least compromised expression of hybrid motoring and probably always will be. Certainly until full EVs see it off altogether.

How are 1.2 C4 Picasso sales, ONE WONDERS?

I wonder if Hyundai Ioniq sales have hurt Pistro sales. It’s a similar shaped thing which has both full on hybrid, plug in hybrid like Bob, but also a pure EV Version. Styling looks much better too.

No single car has hurt the Pristro. Glenda is RITE but it stretches wider to other brands.

If you wanted to pick one single car, the Auris (and latterly Corolla) Tourer has probably landed the biggest blow in the UK. In the provinces, if not in London, it's almost completely replaced the Pristro for the picking up of PISSED PORTERS.

Only for taxis. I’d say there are loads responsible for the private/fleet sector. As son as ‘real cars’ were available with similar tech the Pristro was fucked. Deep.

Most of our ex-Pristro fleet drivers have gone for the C-HR/RAV4, so the head-shaking vogue for SUVs has also contributed to its demise. It's not just about the ubiquity of hybrid drivetrains now, it's about the abandonment of the large family car as a category.

And the fact you look like a taxi-ist in the Pristro.

There’s nothing fashionable about that shite.

"The Prius isn’t brilliant just because it makes a decent minicab. It’s also brilliant because it makes a decent minicab."

I think you're right, I think it will also land a blow on the Auris/Corolla too. They're now the minicab of choice round here, picking up from the Bobs. Prius is now too ugly, the Corolla too expensive.

People who choose their cars as something more than a tool and a recepticle for puke, meanwhile, are no doubt taking the SUV and Lexus alternatives.
