You thought domestic car manufacturers were in trouble before? CNNMoney and Edmunds got together looked at the average discount (selling price versus full sticker price) lowest amounts of rebates, and shortest time on the lot to make the list. Of the ten, six are Toyota’s (Prius was #1, all three Scions were on there too). Three are hybrids (Prius, Lexus RX400h, and Ford Escape Hybrid).

The Prius only spends nine days on the lot (Mini Cooper’s are on the lots the shortest, six days) before being purchased.

Here’s the list:
1. Toyota Prius – $23,506, $71 in incentives, sells for $2,206 over sticker in 9 days.
2. Mini Cooper – $26,403, $103 in incentives, sells for $103 off sticker in 6 days.
3. Pontiac Solstice – $25,287, $75 in incentives, sells for $75 off sticker in 18 days.
4. Scion xA – $14,260, $64 in incentives, sells for $72 off sticker in 16 days.
5. Scion xB – $15,551, $98 in incentives, sells for $104 off sticker in 18 days.
6. Scion tC – $17,769, $95 in incentives, sells for $100 off sticker in 16 days.
7. Lexus RX400h – $47,919, $232 in incentives, sells for $232 off sticker in 27 days.
8. Honda Civic – $18,871, $117 in incentives, sells for $377 off sticker in 15 days.
9. Toyota Rav4 – $24,067, $105 in incentives, sells for $634 off sticker in 14 days.
10. Ford Escape Hybrid – $28,274, $138 in incentives, sells for $694 off sticker in 36 days.
