The C200H uses the same drivetrain as a 2010+ Prius. It would be much easier to find a wrecked Prius.

No offense, but I don't think Pontiac competes with Lexus that much. The reason it exists is Lexus is trying to get younger buyers who want a green luxury vehicle, something nicer than a Prius. IMO the C200H is a pretty nice car. It still gets good mileage, looks great, and has all the gadgets you could ever want.
