Fortune: The Birth of the Prius

| Friday April 21st, 2006 | 0 Comments

But it wasn’t just an “idea” that everyone at Toyota immediately found appealing. According to Fortune Magazine, “Toyota had to overcome punishing deadlines, skeptical dealers, finicky batteries, and its own risk-averse culture to bring its hybrid to market”.
