Toyota dominates sector with eight million hybrids vehicles

TOYOTAToyota has said that it sold over eight million hybrid vehicles worldwide, with just 10 months between this and the last million-unit milestone.

The Japanese automaker revealed that as of July 31, its hybrid vehicles have resulted in approximately 58 million fewer tons of CO2 emissions than would have been emitted by petrol-powered vehicles of similar size and driving performance.

Toyota also estimates that its hybrid vehicles have saved approximately 22 million kilolitres of petrol.

The brand currently sells 30 different hybrid passenger car models and one plug-in hybrid model in more than 90 markets.

Senior Vice President of Toyota South Africa Motors, Calvyn Hamman said: “We appreciate our fleet owners sharing our vision to reduce carbon emissions and creating a cleaner, greener environment. Purchases like these are testament to that commitment.

The eight million milestone is a significant one and we hope to continue increasing hybrid cars.
