That whole "awkwardness" thing is the main problem. "Prius" (plural) sounds
weird when I say it but okay when I write it, kind of like saying "fishes."
I often end up mangling the spoken version into something like "priusoosie"
when I speak it without giving enough thought to it ahead of time.

Here in Arizona we are a y'all-optional state. We even have people who use
the other second person plural forms of "you" from around the US: "you-uns"
and "youse." With something that common in disarray the plural of this car
model doesn't bother me all that much. Take care now, y'hear?

How about using the Hebrew form, Priusim?

Not certain about the spelling.
