Toyota Prius is best selling Plug-in Hybrid
Recently announced sales figures have confirmed Prius Plug-in as the best-selling plug-in hybrid in the UK.
The car achieved 470 sales from its launch date in July 2012, outselling its nearest rival, Vauxhall Ampera, despite it being on sale since April, 3 months longer than the Toyota. In 2012, the hybrid range expanded from two to five vehicles: Yaris Hybrid, 7-seat Prius+ and Prius Plug-in were added to the existing Prius and Auris Hybrid. New Auris Hybrid, launched in December, is the latest model to feature a full hybrid powertrain, returning fuel economy of 76.3mpg and CO2 emissions of 87g/km.
