What kind of a car does Albert Alexandre Louis Pierre Grimaldi a.k.a. His Serene Highness Albert II, Sovereign Prince of Monaco drive? He drives a Prius.
Yesterday, he switched it for a plug-in hybrid Prius. The minute the first plug-in hybrid was available in Europe, Toyota shipped it to Monaco as a two month loaner. The intent: Convince the ruler of the 35,800 car principality at France’s Cote d’ Azur to plug-in permanently.
