Toyota has announced that its worldwide hybrid sales have eclipsed the nine-million mark.
The Japanese automaker has sold a total of 9.014-million hybrid vehicles as of April 30, with the latest million-unit milestone achieved in just nine months. Last year, Toyota added a hybrid version of its Sienna minivan and began selling the fourth-generation Toyota Prius. Overseas, the automaker introduced the Corolla and Levin hybrid models in China, while adding a hybrid variant of the RAV4 to its lineup.
As of the end of April 2016, Toyota is selling 33 hybrid passenger car models and a plug-in hybrid model in over 90 countries and regions.
The company has no intentions of stopping anytime soon either. Toyota is expanding its lineup of hybrid vehicles even further and wants to achieve annual sales of 1.5-million units with cumulative sales hitting the 15-million mark by 2020.
By the company’s calculations, its hybrid vehicles have resulted in 67-million fewer tons of CO2 emissions compared to conventional vehicles.
