Article by Christian Andrei, on October 17, 2014

We already know that Toyota is the leader when it comes to hybrid cars and by the end of 2015, the Japanese manufacturer will introduce a total of 15 new hybrids globally. Moreover, the company announced that its global hybrid sales hit the 7 million unit milestone in September and that the latest million-unit hybrid target was achieved in just nine months.

Toyota introduce three new hybrid models this year: the Voxy Hybrid and Noah Hybrid in Japan only as well as the new Lexus NX 300h. The fourth hybrid model will arrive this month as Toyota will introduce the Lexus RC 300h.

Currently, Toyota offers 27 different hybrid passenger cars and one plug-in model in more than 90 countries and regions. In the United States, Toyota and Lexus offer 12 hybrid models as well as one plug-in hybrid model, which account for 70 percent of industry hybrid sales.

“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.” [source: Toyota]
