Toyota Hybrid Sales Surpass 10 Million
Recently, Toyota announced that the company had sold more than 10 million hybrid vehicles world-wide, including hybrid plug-ins, as of January 31, 2017. This milestone occurred only nine months after the company broke the 9 million vehicle mark in April of 2016.
Toyota Motor North America (TMNA) saw the division’s cumulative hybrid and plug-in hybrid sales reach a total of more than three million by the end of 2016.
Toyota estimates that use of Toyota’s hybrid vehicles has resulted in roughly 77 million fewer tons of CO2 being emitted and saved approximately 7.66 billion gallons of gasoline. Most importantly, the results demonstrate how hybrid powertrains have now emerged as a mainstream solution to help reduce greenhouse gases and other pollutants. It’s the company’s belief that widespread adoption of vehicles that are friendlier to the environment can make a significant positive impact throughout the world.
