Toyota Hybrid Vehicle Sales Pass Three Million

Toyota’s first hybrid, the Coaster Hybrid EV bus was launched in 1997, the same year the first generation Prius was launched. Currently Toyota offers 16 different hybrid models around the world and plans to add 10 more by the end of 2012.

Since 1997, Toyota has sold little over three million hybrids, with the majority of the sales coming from the last couple of years. For example since August of 2009, Toyota has sold more than one million hybrids around the world.

In the UK hybrid sales began with Prius in October 2000 and so far more than 73,000 units have been sold. Customers today can choose from six different Toyota and Lexus hybrids here.
