Toyota Sells Its 4 Millionth Hybrid
In 1997, Toyota marked an automotive breakthrough when it sold its first hybrid vehicle in Japan. Today, just 15 years later, the company sells 18 hybrid passenger vehicles in 80 countries around the world, and recently delivered its 4 millionth vehicle to use the fuel-saving technology.
"All of us at Toyota would like to sincerely thank our customers, who have made Prius the best-selling hybrid in the industry," said Bob Carter, group vice president and general manager, Toyota Division. "While we're proud of this accomplishment, we are not stopping here as hybrids will continue to be a core technology for Toyota."
