RAV4 Hybrid Was Toyota’s Best-Selling Hybrid in First Half 2022. You Will Not Believe Second Place
You may not be surprised to learn that 2022 RAV4 Hybrid outsold all other Toyota hybrid vehicles for the first half of 2022.
First half sales show Toyota hybrid customers chose RAV4 Hybrid 86,803 times. That is about 34,000 RAV4 Hybrids more than Toyota sold compared against the first half of 2021 calendar year.
Not bad considering the worldwide vehicle shortage surrounding the entire automotive industry. As Darth Vader would say, “Most impressive.”
2022 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Popularity
And this absolutely makes sense, as Toyota RAV4 is the best-selling small SUV in the entire country and has been for several years. Better than any other competitor across all brands.

With 40mpg combined and 219 net hybrid horsepower, plus great family versatility, Toyota RAV4 Hybrid has stayed at the forefront for many potential hybrid vehicle customers.
But how did other popular Toyota hybrid models fare for first half 2022?
2022 Toyota Sienna Review
Sienna Hybrid actually outsold RAV4 Hybrid for the first half of 2021 (approximately 56,000 to 52,000 units), but now it finds itself firmly in second place behind RAV4 Hybrid.
For the first six months of 2022, customers bought 34,391 Sienna Hybrid vehicles.
If I can speculate a bit, I attribute this switch to the immense popularity of RAV4 Hybrid (actually the entire Toyota RAV4 lineup really, including RAV4 Prime) and the fact that is pretty challenging to find a 2022 Toyota Sienna to buy all across the country.
And I can see why Sienna Hybrid is in such high demand. Imagine a minivan that gets 36 miles per gallon combined. Plus, it is smooth and comfortable with really good space in all three rows.
Popularity of 2022 Highlander Hybrid
Third place for the first half of 2022 is Highlander Hybrid. Toyota sold 27,809 units of its well-received midsize hybrid SUV.
Smooth. Quiet. Comfortable.
