Report: Toyota denied exclusive rights to 'Prius' trademark
The court in New Delhi denied Toyota's request for exclusive rights to the Prius trademark, citing the long delay. Also dismissed by the court was Toyota's claim that having two automotive claims to the Prius name could confuse buyers into thinking that any parts with the Prius Auto Industries branding could be misconstrued as originating from Toyota. The high income group typical of the Toyota buyer in India puts that person in the position to understand what it is they're paying for.
