Here’s a low down of things: Toyota was the first car manufacturer to sell a mass produce hybrid model with the introduction of the Prius. They also have a record of 27 different hybrid passenger car models and one plug-in hybrid model sold in more than 90 countries and regions. 

So it’s not a surprise that, as of 30 September 2014, they have a sales record that passes the 7 million mark and counting. What’s more is that this million-unit milestone was achieved in the fastest time for Toyota, it took only nine months.
Toyota’s endeavour to encourage the mass market to adopt hybrid vehicles is working very well indeed with this result. They are also hoping to expand their hybrid vehicle reach to more countries and regions along with plans to add another 15 more hybrids to their list of models. Please bring more to Malaysia!

According to the results of their sales, Toyota calculated that their hybrid vehicles resulted in approximately 49 million fewer tons of CO2 emissions that would have been emitted by gasoline-powered vehicles of similar size and driving performance. They also estimates that its hybrid vehicles have saved approximately 18 million kilolitres of petrol compared to the amount used by normal fuel engine cars of similar size.

Toyota plans to continue working to enhance performance of their hybrid technologies to create vehicles that are popular with consumers.
