evolution that have suffered the cars in the last part of the last century has been much more pronounced than have lived throughout all of its history. One of the great milestones was that Toyota Motor launched to the market mass the first hybrid vehicle in the world. However, in the japanese firm did not remain of arms crossed and they decided to continue making history by improving this technology to make it more affordable and accessible for the masses.
As we all know its great exponent technology has been the Prius, but after him have come many more. In addition, we must also have in mind that Lexus, the signature premium from Toyota, has decided to abandon the mechanical cycle diesel and to focus their efforts on the hybrid type. With all of this in these days there has been a fact that twenty years ago the managers of the firm nippon could not have imagined and that have already been sold more than ten million of hybrid vehicles from Toyota to the length and width of the world.
Its portfolio of hybrid products has been growing year-on-year and today offers up to 34 hybrid vehicles different that are sold in more than 90 countries of the world. As exponents of the hybrid technology of Toyota we have in the most rational to the Prius and more emotional Lexus LC 500h. However, in the middle of both we find the first compact hybrid in the story, the Auris or the urban Yaris.
As data to highlight there is that mention that in April of last year, Toyota already managed to sell over 9 million cars hybrids in the world. So in less than a year has been able to sell more than a million of this type of car so that every time they form a most important part of your sales mix world. In addition, and as a nod to the preservation of the environment is that to say that during the twenty years that they’ve been selling Toyotas hybrid have been no longer emit to the atmosphere about 77 million tons of polluting gases and you would have saved about 29 billion liters of gasoline.
Congratulations Toyota, for another ten million of hybrid cars in a very short time.
