According to an article from The Wall Street Journal’s Market Watch, on April 30th, Toyota announced global cumulative sales of its hybrid vehicles have surpassed 4 million units. Toyota has always been a leader in quality, fuel efficiency and value, and its dominance of the rapidly growing hybrid market illustrates their commitment to producing environmentally-friendly and technologically advanced vehicles for the mass market.
Although the Prius, which came to North America in 2000, may be most familiar hybrid brand to those of us here in Oregon and across the US, Toyota’s first hybrid vehicle was actually a minibus, the Coaster Hybrid EV. Debuting in Japan in August 1997, production of the Coaster Hybrid continued until 2007.
According to Toyota, the Prius C and Prius V models, two very recent additions to the family, have already made up approximately 250,000 of those 4 million units sold. Now in its third generation, the Prius makes up the lion’s share of those sales at 2.6 million units. Toyota hybrids don’t stop at the Prius, though. Toyota sells 18 hybrid passenger vehicles across 80 countries. The best-selling passenger car in North America, the Toyota Camry, added the Camry Hybrid to its line in 2006. For those in the market for an SUV, Toyota offers the Highlander Hybrid with seating for up to 7 passengers.
The pace of hybrid vehicle sales has been steadily increasing for Toyota, which hit the one million units sold milestone in May 2007, a decade after the Coaster Hybrid EV premiered. It took 27 months for Toyota to reach the two million mark, and only 18 months to pass three million, which it did in February 2011.
Most car brands have devoted followers. The people who love Ferraris and classic cars seem almost obsessed with them: reading books, attending auto shows, and, if they can afford to, tinkering with their own models at home. Classic cars are more like works of art than automobiles, so it’s rare for a common brand to produce similar passion. Toyota is the exception. Prius owners feel a special bond with their vehicles and FJ cruiser owners love passing each other on the road, but 4WD Toyota drivers are perhaps the most passionate. Publishing a magazine and congregating at rugged destinations all over America, these men and women have a matchless pride in their 4WD Toyotas.
In 2005, 4WD Toyota Owner launched as the only all-Toyota magazine for sale in the U.S. Its stories and spreads are devoted to one thing: rugged 4WD Toyotas and the people who drive them. The magazine caters to people who love the outdoors and the Toyota brand and the fact that it’s been in circulation for seven years proves its appeal to a Toyota enthusiasts everywhere.
Asking whether Toyota enthusiasts loved the outdoors or Toyota first is almost like posing the chicken and egg question. For years, Toyota has been synonymous with dependability—which is essential for any off-road excursion. Devoted 4WD Toyota owners love their Tacomas and 4Runners so much that they can’t imagine undertaking a trek without them.
It’s a nation-wide trend, but the magazine is based in the Pacific Northwest, which makes sense to any Oregon native. Our state contains expansive wilderness, and remains a territory suitable for adventure. Toyota 4WD owners can love their vehicles anywhere, but Oregon’s Toyota fans have the benefit of rugged outdoors all around them.
