The plurals of Prius

A current television commercial for the Toyota Prius avows, aloud and on the screen, that ninety percent of “Prius” are still on the road. Toyota must be reluctant to use its chosen plural form, the ungainly Prii. Or as the New Yorker might put it, Priï.

I drive a Prius and will continue to say Priuses when necessary. Oh, look at all the Priuses on the road.

[Driving from Illinois to Boston last month, we averaged 56.6 miles per gallon. YMMV.]
