Global Toyota Prius sales exceed 2m units

The Toyota Prius has reached another milestone, with global sales exceeding 2m since the original Prius was launched back in 1997.

Across three generations, approximately 2,012,000 units have been sold in more than 70 countries and regions, up to the end of September this year. UK sales during the same period were 38,600 units.

Based on these volumes, Toyota calculates Prius has saved around 11m tonnes of CO2 emissions compared to petrol models of similar size and power, an achievement supported by its continuing development of its full hybrid technology to achieve even cleaner and more fuel efficient performance.

The current Prius emits just 89g/km of CO2 and returns 74.3mpg.
