The mental disorder suffered by prius drivers who lost in their own smug self-righeousness completely overlook that they drive a car as gutless, vanilla and overrated as they infact are.

Do Americans know the rest of the world has super-efficent diesels that do better milage for half the price, guess that's why they have delusions of Prius Envy.

To be envious of another's Toyota Prius; to long for high MPG when the price of gas gets higher and higher; to want a Prius; the pain you feel when you see a Prius, don't know the owner but are jealous of them.

My truck gets 15 mpg, while Tommy's Prius gets 50 mpg... Man, I have total prius envy.

Noun, plural -vies, verb, -vied, -vy·ing.

a feeling of discontent or covetousness with regard to another person's ownership of a hybrid vehicle; especially those who bought early and scored the coveted limited edition carpool lane stickers.

Particularly strong among some SUV owners, such as those who used subprime lending for a second mortage to buy a $50,000 vehicle that they can no longer afford.
I'm trying to sell my Expedition before gas goes up to five bucks a gallon; I've got a serious case of prius envy.

Something idiots get. They wish that their car was less fuel efficient, less powerful, less fun, less stylish, and much heavier, much more dangerous than a Chevrolet Cobalt.
If Chevrolet can get a seven liter V8 in a Corvette Z06 to do 30+mpg, why do people have prius envy about the 1.5 in the Prius that only gets 42?
If Chevrolet can get 50 mpg out of a 2.2 liter engine in a Cobalt, why do people have prius envy about the 1.5 in the Prius that only gets 42?

The envy that comes with being the last person on your block without a Prius.
