Doesn't the Camry hybrid already qualify on that front?

Interestingly, Canadians Prius sales have never even come close (on a per capita basis) to the US - for some reason, we buy far more Camry hybrids. I've yet to see a Canadian-plated 3rd gen Prius on the road. But Camry hybrids are a fairly regular sight (if you remember to look for the little badge).
