The Detroit News - April 18, 2013

Toyota’s global sales of gasoline-electric hybrid vehi­cles have sur­passed five mil­lion in a mile­stone for a tech­nol­ogy that was ini­tially greeted with skep­ti­cism. Toyota’s hybrid vehi­cles now account for 14% of its global sales and 40% of its sales in Japan. Toy­ota Motor Corp. sells 19 hybrid pas­sen­ger car mod­els and one plug-in hybrid, and is promis­ing 18 new hybrids.
