A very short Hybrid Moment

Last night on my way home (~7 pm) I stopped at Stevens Creek Honda to look at the Civic hybrid. Unlike Sunnyvale Toyota, where there were two salesfolk on the lot to greet me, there was nobody paying attention to customers at Honda. I walked around the lot, looked at stickers and was shocked to see that where Toyota marked everything down from MSRP, Honda added $3k. This brought the price of the minimum package Civic Hybrid to about $28k, more than the Prius for what looked like far less car. I was there for about 15 minutes, and at no time did anyone as much as look at me, though I could see two salesclowns on the lot and two more in the showroom. Maybe this explains why Toyota has sold more than 60,000 hybrids and Honda has not.
