Scott, 68, brother of fellow director Ridley Scott, left a suicide note in his Toyota prius, which was parked on the bridge.
And the prius is still a major player—with a significant change.
With its distinctive design and huge market share, the prius easily stood out.
"that which takes precedence," noun use of Latin neuter of prior "former, earlier" (see prior (adj.)). The hybrid car (with a capital P- ) debuted in 1997 in Japan, 2001 in U.S. and Europe. Name supposedly chosen because the car is a predecessor of new types. Proper plural is said to be Priora, but that is for the adjective.
