Fifteen short years ago, Prius was the new kid on the block. A lot has changed in that time. We at Gresham Toyota sell quite a few Prii, but that has become a nationwide trend. According to a recent article in Businessweek, in Q1 2012, only bigger brother Toyota Corolla and the Ford Focus sold more units.
Earlier this month Toyota announced it has sold over four million hybrid vehicles. With hybrid variations for many of its cars and four vehicles in the Prius family (the third-generation Prius, the Prius Hybrid, the five-door Prius v, and the newcomer Prius c), the company proves that the market for fuel-efficient and eco-friendly vehicles is continuing to grow.
U.S. demand is projected to outpace supply by 30,000 units in 2012 as the brand grows globally, especially in its home country of Japan. Barring unforeseen circumstances along the lines of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, which slowed global production, approximately 220,000 new Prii will be designated for the U.S. market.
The Prius, with the Corolla and midsize Camry, the top-selling car in the U.S. for the past 10 years, now give Toyota three of the top 10 selling cars in the States.

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.
It’s been a beautiful, warm week here in the Pacific Northwest, and with the sun came another group of great Gresham Toyota customers! As the week wraps up to a close, here are a few of the faces who chose Gresham to find their newest vehicle. We’re so glad each one of you came in to see us!
