The cumulative global sales of Toyota’s hybrid vehicle has now reached 7.053 million units, with the latest million-unit milestone achieved in nine months – the fastest time yet for Toyota.

According to Toyota, the mitigation of the environmental effects of automobiles is a priority. In line with this, Toyota believes that environment-friendly vehicles can only truly have a significant positive impact if they are widely used, hence the company’s push to encourage the mass-market adoption of hybrid vehicles.

Toyota calculates that as of September 30, Toyota hybrid vehicles have helped avoid 49 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions that would have otherwise been emitted by gasoline powered vehicles of similar size and driving performance.

In addition, Toyota estimates that its hybrid vehicles have saved around 18 million kilometers of gasoline compared to the amount used by gasoline-powered vehicles of similar sizes.

At present, Toyota sells 27 different hybrid passenger car models and one plug-in model in more than 90 countries and regions. From the start of this year to the end of 2015, Toyota is planning to launch a total of 15 new hybrid vehicles.

Toyota plans to continue working to enhance performance, reduce costs, and expand its product lineup, including its environment-friendly non-hybrid vehicles, to create vehicles that are popular with consumers. – EcoSeed Staff
