How Popular is the Toyota Prius?

The Toyota Prius is the most popular choice when it comes to hybrid cars by a long shot. The next hybrid car in line for popularity is the Honda Civic Hybrid. Honda has sold 21,736 Civic Hybrids through the month of August in the U.S. Prius sales are about 6x higher with 124,620 sold so far this year. Overall, around 1 out of every 2 hybrids sold in the U.S. is a Prius.

But that's not the whole story.

In the U.S. last month, 712,163 cars were sold. Through the month August that brings the total to 5,416,759 cars sold. But that means that 2.0% in the month of August and 2.3% year to date of the cars sold have been the Prius.

Think about that for a second. 2 out of every 100 cars sold in the U.S. is a Prius. And you thought you were imagining things when you thought you saw the Prius everywhere you go.

Toyota, which has become the most popular car company in the US sold 135,507 cars in August and have year to date sales of 1,045,631 cars. Which means 10.4% of the cars Toyota sold in August and 8.9% YTD have been Prius.

Again, think about that. 1 out of every 10 cars sold by Toyota is a Prius.

Is it a wonder why other car companies are looking so hard to bring hybrids to market?
