According to VFACT sales data released today, Toyota Australia sold a record number of hybrid vehicles last year, and it’s already predicting an even better result for 2020.
Of the 205,766 Toyota vehicles sold last year, 27,846 – or 13.5 per cent – were fitted with a hybrid powertrain. This figure is more than double of that achieved in 2018.
Now riding a wave of momentum following the launch of new hybrid versions of the Corolla small sedan and C-HR small SUV late last year, Toyota Australia says it is targeting 40,000 petrol-electric sales in 2020.
Considering the company expects to sell more than 200,000 vehicles for the 16th time in 17 years in 2020, this means hybrid powertrains could be fitted to about 20 per cent of them.
