Toyota leads the way in hybrid sales with Prius C
Toyota has reported that it sold 8,400 units in the first ten weeks of in the U.S. market. That’s not the only vehicle they’re proud of though, as the Prius C, its smaller, more efficient, and compact hybrid has sales to boot. The Prius C sold 1,201 its first three days on sale in the U.S. AutoBlog reports, “that's enough to make it "one of Toyota's fastest-selling vehicles," according to the automaker, which also pointed out that those three days of sales is more than either the Nissan Leaf or Chevrolet Volt sold all last month.” However, these numbers are nothing compared to the Japanese market.
Toyota reports that 120,000 orders have been put in for the Prius C. Though we’re not certain as to how many were sold, it is clear that the Prius franchise is doing exceptionally well. There were almost 10,000 sales reported the first half of March in the U.S. and Toyota has projected to sell 220,000 units this year. All we got to say, is those are some impressive numbers.
