As I underestand, Toyota built a Prius which was sold only in the Far
East back in the '90s.  The next version was sold both there and in the
US--hence the Gen 2.Gen 3 confusion.

Better to use the year.

Better still to use the model number.
97-00 Japan only is NHW10
01-03 is NHW11
04-09 is NHW20
10-?? is ZVW30

So, then, the 2010 is generation 30.

Wow, a lot of generations don't make it market!

I think the decimal doesn't make it into the model number.  Thus, ZVW30
is version 3.0, right?

Perhaps, but then what about generation 1.1?
