Toyota Prius Prime Has Plans To Kill Off Prius Hybrid

In line with its ambition, the Japanese carmaker has launched the new Camry Hybrid (Rs 31.98 lakh) and the fourth-generation Prius (Rs 38.96 lakh) in India today. The original Prius plug-in hybrid only had about 75,000 units sold from its launch in 2012 to its closure in 2015.

Toyota last crossed a million-level milestone back in May 2016.

Toyota has calculated that on December 31st, its global hybrid sales reached approximately 10,050,000 cars since August 1997, when it sold the first minibus Coaster Hybrid EV, the precursor of the famous Prius, launched in Japan in December 1997.

In the USA alone, the vehicle manufacturer saw sales of its hybrids and plug-in hybrids reach a cumulative total of more than three million units as of December 31, 2016.

"We are grateful to each and every customer who has helped us achieve this important brand of the 10 million hybrids sold". Prius arrived in New Zealand in 2003.

During the past two decades, Buffett has focused more on acquisitions than picking stocks. "More planes are traveling more full". Apple , the largest stock by market cap, has gained 17% since the end of the year and closed at a record high Tuesday.

In terms of design and appearance, the 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid remains largely similar to the older model apart for some minor cosmetic tweaks and some new features. Said in a statement Takeshi Uchiyamada, Chairman of the Board of Toyota, also known as the "father" of the Prius.

With Toyota hybrid units gaining a new level of acceptance and popularity, the automaker estimates that it has contributed to approximately 77 million fewer tons of Carbon dioxide emissions and has saved approximately 29 million kiloliters of gasoline.

But as more automakers develop electric cars in response to tightening global emissions regulations, Toyota late past year set up a new division to speed up development of long-range electric cars.

"Now that customers around the world are opting to purchase hybrid and other fuel-efficient vehicles, the entire automobile industry has been able to contribute to the solution of global environmental problems", TMC said. The company plan to achieve this by facilitating different fuel combinations through batteries and fuel-hydrogen cells.
