Officially Prii according to Toyota, I read someplace. Same Latin form as plural of radius = radii.

nope. it's Lexus
1 Lexus, 2 Lexus, 78 Lexus. 1 Moose, 2 Moose, 78 moose.

or to be truly asinine: it could be Lexxus...
1 Lexus, 2 Lexxus, 78 Lexxus

I looked this up and saw that some Toyota people do say "Lexuses" because it's not an actual Greek word. It's made up. I usually get around it by saying "Lexus vehicles." 8-{D>

A month late earlyre but you said above, "nope. it's Lexus 1 Lexus, 2 Lexus, 78 Lexus. 1 Moose, 2 Moose, 78 moose.

How do you know this? What is it which matches Lexus with moose?

1 deer, 2 deer, 78 deer. Oh dear!

My "gut phonetics" agrees with you but the "Toyota people" do carry weight.
