Toyota’s hybrid focus has come a long way. From the early days of fuel economy of 61.4mpg offered through a four door saloon, a network of 60 Toyota Hybrid Technology Centres looked into sales, servicing, repairs and recycling.
Growth, development and demand has given rise to 6 Toyota hybrids across segments. Toyota hybrid global sales are almost at 7 million, and rightfully Prius is among the world’s most popular cars. Hybrid-powered Auris UK sales is set to overtake petrol and diesel versions combined. Yaris Hybrid’s share has been increasing in overall supermini sales.
A fleet customer will take delivery of the 100,000th UK hybrid. Lexus’ hybrid power in the luxury car market is nearing its 50,000 UK sales having debuted RX 400h here in 2005.
