NEW YORK, April 17 -- THIS REPORT BROUGHT TO YOU BY TOYOTA.

SINCE RELEASING THE FIRST TOYOTA PRIUS IN 1997, TOYOTA HAS SOLD NEARLY FIVE MILLION HYBRID VEHICLES WORLDWIDE.

TOYOTA AND ITS LEXUS DIVISION HAVE SOLD NEARLY TWO MILLION HYBRIDS HERE IN THE U.S. THEIR VEHICLES MAKE UP THE MAJORITY OF ALL U.S. HYBRID SALES.

BOB CARTER, TOYOTA MOTOR SALES:

"The first Prius was a surprising success, but I don't think any of us at the time imagined it would lead to twelve Toyota and Lexus hybrids for the US market with sales of two million. And after 13 years, there are nearly 50 hybrid models on the road today, but Prius still leads the way."

WORLDWIDE, TOYOTA SELLS 19 HYBRID MODELS AND ONE PLUG-IN HYBRID. TWELVE MODELS ARE AVAILABLE HERE IN THE U.S., AND THREE MORE ARE BUILT HERE.

BETWEEN NOW AND THE END OF 2015, TOYOTA WILL INTRODUCE 18 NEW MODELS AND EXPECTS GLOBAL SALES OF AT LEAST A MILLION HYBRIDS A YEAR OVER THAT SAME PERIOD.
