Toyota’s first hybrid vehicle hit the market in 1997, and took a decade to sell its first million units. Since then, Toyota’s hybrid sales have taken off and continue to rise. It took Toyota two years to sell 2 million hybrids, and a year and a half to reach 3 million sold. Last week, Toyota announced that it had sold a total of 4 million hybrids, and it took only 14 months to go from 3 million to 4 million in sales. For the upcoming year, the Japanese car manufacturer expects its global hybrid sale to top 1 million for the first time ever.

The Toyota line up of hybrid vehicles for 2012 features some of Toyota’s already iconic models, as well as some new faces created solely for the hybrid market. These models include: Camry, Highlander, Prius, Prius c, Prius Plug-in and Prius v.

Many consumers were surprised when Toyota offered one of the best-selling sedans ever in a hybrid model, but the Camry Hybrid has not disappointed. When purchasing a hybrid sedan customers expect fuel economy, and the 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid delivers. The 2012 Camry Hybrid returns 39 mpg highway and 43 mpg city, and it does so while delivering something that most hybrid sedans do not; performance. The Camry Hybrid’s 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine generates 200 horsepower, which is unrivaled by any in its class.

For drivers looking for even more impressive fuel economy, there is the all-new Prius c. The fuel efficiency of the 2012 Prius c is unmatched by any small hybrid in its class, getting an estimated 53 miles per gallon in the city and 46 miles per gallon on the highway. The 53 mpg city is the highest rating of any vehicle that does not have a plug. These numbers make it the perfect car for a customer to get around the city in while still maintaining financial peace of mind at the pump.
