Hm...  either my sums have been wrong, or Toyota sold more vehicles
than they've been reporting in their monthly press releases...

"Toyota/Lexus hybrid sales from January 1, 2006 through May 31, 2006
totaled 68,637."
http://www.toyota.com/prius/tax.html
http://www.toyota.com/camry/tax.html
http://www.toyota.com/highlander/tax.html
http://www.lexus.com/models/popup_taxCredit.html

"The Quarterly Report of Qualified Vehicles for the Alternative Motor
Vehicle Credit for the quarter ending March 31, 2006, shows that Toyota
(which owns Lexus) sold 41,779 qualifying vehicles to retail dealers."
http://www.irs.gov/newsroom/article/0,,id 8460,00.html

Or maybe Toyota has it wrong, as my July cumulative sales numbers add
up...

"TMS calendar-year-to-date hybrid sales broke the 100,000-unit sales
milestone, reporting 105,808 hybrid units. In July, hybrids sales
totaled 20,298 units."
