Toyota rolls out another Hybrid concept ahead of Beijing
Prior to its debut at this year’s Auto Show in Beijing China, Toyota has given us some teasers in advance of the unveiling of their new hybrid concept. With the price of gasoline continuing to increase, and the report that sales of hybrid cars grew significantly in the U.S. last month, Toyota is introducing the new concept at a good time.
Toyota continues to be the most popular choice in hybrid vehicles among consumers. The top three selling hybrid vehicles in March were all Toyota models, the Prius, Camry, and Lexus CT 200h. Toyota also makes a Hylander Hybrid SUV that is gaining popularity among consumers.
Toyota is still entrenched in the top spot with the Prius having a stronghold on the North American market representing more than half of all hybrid sales in March with 27,800 units sold. The next most popular hybrid, the Toyota Camry sold 5,404 units giving the Prius five times the number of sales.
Toyota announced recently its new framework called New Global Architecture in hopes to develop multiple models simultaneously to boost the quantity of common parts used across its vehicles. The NS4 plug-in Hybrid that made its debut in Detroit, is a mid-size concept that Toyota developed for potential global market introduction by 2015.
