Arrow Toyota hybrid sales top one million

Toyota hybrid sales top one million

Toyota has more than one million hybrid engine vehicles since sales of the first Prius began in 1997.

Toyota has confirmed that global cumulative sales of Toyota hybrid vehicles have topped the one million mark, with approximately 1,047,000 units sold worldwide by the end of May this year.

Toyota launched the Prius, the world's first mass-produced hybrid vehicle, in Japan in 1997 and began selling it in North America, Europe and elsewhere in 2000.

The second-generation Prius, equipped with the Toyota Hybrid System II, was introduced in 2003 with an emphasis on delivering both environmental performance and power. Over time, Toyota has expanded the use of its hybrid system to minivans, SUVs, rear-wheel-drive saloons and other vehicles. Hybrid vehicles have been enjoying good sales both in Japan and in over 40 countries and regions around the world, particularly North America.
