So far this year the overall market is down 19% but Toyota is down only 7.7% the smallest decline of any in the top ten car companies.
24% of the new vehicles so far in 2020 are hybrids. That’s nearly double the number they sold in the same period last year. In July 2020 hybrids were 41% of sales.
Their Camry has their highest percentage of hybrids at 65% and not far behind the RAV 4 with 61% and the Corolla with 52%.
That nearly a quarter of their sales are hybrids is all the more revealing when they do not provide hybrids in some of their biggest selling models such as the Hilux Ute.
