If you have been seeing many more hybrids out on the road lately, it wasn’t just your mind playing tricks on you. Toyota has officially announced that, since the Toyota Prius release in Japan 1997, sales for this hybrid model have exceeded 7 million.
What’s more, Toyota green car sales outrank other automakers in the industry. According to Toyota Product Chief Karl Schlicht stated that “Toyota’s hybrid drivetrain technology is far from reaching its peak…Toyota is moving into a new wave of hybrid technology that’s more efficient [than] ever, sportier than ever and more appealing to mainstream buyers.”
This is great to hear that although Toyota will be releasing the first mass-produced hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle soon, their focus remains strong with the Prius and hybrid technology. We are sure that the trend towards this technology will continue to grow and increase Toyota sales.
