“We believe consumer incentives should encourage all plug-in designs and allow the consumer market to select winners, not legislation,” Wimmer said.
I don't recall him complaining when the government gave huge tax rebates to the Prius.

It seems that Toyota is jealous of the fact that they are actually behind behind the hybrid plug-in race. This debate is actually a go thing, since it rises the fact that hybrid cars are clogging the carpool lane and that hybrids don't actually protect the environment.

Toyota/Robert Wimmer sounds like a cry baby. Wimmer also sounds like a lobbyist. Perhaps he is one for Toyota.

**** Toyota! Atleast the American government did not fund the Volt like the Prius. This is America and the Volt should damn well have special tax breaks to encourage people to buy American.

heh, it is fine when they are getting the special treatment, however, when somebody else gets it, all of the sudden it isn't fair.

I think that something like this would be great, it would motivate other auto makers to build vehicles that match the standards of this rebate. Healthy competition if you ask me.

What happened to all that "good will" of them raising their prices so GM would be able to sell more cars? Uh huh! Or this could be a good ruse to make the domestics think they are more behind than they really are...

They need to load up all their stupid Prius' back in the steel cargo boxes they got shipped across on and take them back to Japan if they don't like it. The world will be a better place without those crappy little pos cars running around with their arrogant owners.

WOW! Toyota go home you got a rebate on the Prius, but you sold too many so now you don't get one. So why again should the VOLT not get the rebate.
