Oh, wait. That one is true. The Los Angeles Times reports that while the bestselling vehicle in America is Ford's F-Series pickup, California's favorite car is the high-mpg Toyota Prius hybrid. In 2012, the Prius toppled the Honda Civic for the number one sales spot in the Golden State; nationally, the Prius ranks number 14. In fact, California accounts for more than a quarter of all Prius sales in the U.S. According to the Times, “Ford's F-Series pickup truck, perennially the national bestseller, placed seventh in California with sales of 25,434 — less than half of Prius sales.”
Yes, you can have sprouts with that.
