Today, Toyota Motor Sales reported March ’09 sales numbers, which showed a 55 percent decline for the Prius brand.  In March ’08, Toyota sold 20,635 Priuses, but in March ’09, only 8,924. (Maybe everyone is holding out for the 2010 model?)

Overall, Toyota numbers were down 36 percent from March ’08, but up 19 percent from February.
