Toyota Motor Sales USA has announced that it will be offering a new Online Ordering system for the Prius Plug-in hybrid.
The first phase, dubbed Priority Registration, began last week on April 22nd (Earth Day) and gave potential customers the chance to log on to a dedicated website and be among the first to order one of the Plug-in Hybrids.
The actual system will allow punters to choose options and configurations, exterior colors, the dealership they wish to purchase from (selected within 14 of the 15 launch states) as well as the ability for them to track their specific vehicle order through the phases of production, shipping and delivery.
Said launch markets for the latest edition to the Prius fleet in the US are Arizona, California, Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington and Hawaii (though on-line ordering will not be available in Hawaii at launch).
Customers in these states will be able to receive their Plug-in Prius models in Spring 2012, with a full nationwide rollout scheduled to follow in 2013.
