Toyota is considered one of the pioneers of alternative fuel, making the hybrid powertrain a popular option with its Prius lineup and, more recently, introducing its new fuel cell vehicle, which will go on sale later this year. Now, the Japanese carmaker has truly made its mark on the world of alternative fuel with the announcement that Toyota sold 7 million hybrid units over the past fourteen years, making it a global hybrid leader in the car industry.
“Hitting the 7 million mark represents our customers’ recognition of the benefits of Toyota and Lexus hybrid vehicles,” said Bob Carter, Toyota senior vice president of automotive operations. “The appeal of excellent fuel economy, driving dynamics, and the quality of our vehicles combined with our dealers’ dedication to customer service makes Toyota the undeniable leader in hybrid technology.”
Including a variety of new hybrid vehicles this year, Toyota is set to introduce 15 new hybrid vehicles through 2015, both under the Toyota brand name and the Lexus brand name. Currently, the hybrid carmaker sells 27 hybrid cars around the world.
