If the number of sales continue to increase for the Toyota Camry the way they have in the past few months, 48,000 a year won't be enough.

Prius sales have only been limited by production numbers, not demand, this year according to Toyota.

Some inventory relief will come this fall when the Georgetown plant begins building 48,000 Camry Hybrid models, about one-eighth of Camry production at the plant. That will free up Toyota's Japanese export allocation for more standard Camrys, while the Japanese hybrid plant can concentrate on Prius production.
