According to a recent press release, out of the 15 million hybrid cars sold by Toyota, 2.8 million out of these vehicles were sold to Europe, and the United Kingdom’s auto market has the highest recorded sales of Toyota hybrid cars. It was also stated in the reports that hybrid vehicles now account for two-thirds (66.1%) of all the new passenger cars sold by Toyota in the United Kingdom.

Moving on to Britain, the Toyota Yaris is reportedly the automaker’s current best-selling hybrid car model followed by the Prius model. This popularity and wide acceptance of the Yaris model has prompted Toyota to promise that the coming 2021 Yaris model will impress customers even more. According to Toyota, this upcoming model will feature the 4th-generation of its hybrid car technology which the automaker claims will deliver a more remarkable electric driving capability with “significantly” higher zero-emission.
