Toyota Prius Number One in Japan

The 2010 Toyota Prius has topped the sales charts in Japan (excluding minicars with displacements of less than 660 cc) for the month of May according to the Japan Automobile Dealers Association (JADA). (Found via GCC).

The Prius doubled sales from last May, hitting 10,915 units sold. The Honda Insight was the first hybrid to become a top seller in Japan in April, but the Prius has surpassed the Insight, pushing it down to third after the Honda Fit. I can't imagine Honda is too upset with that since they occupy the first two spots.

According to some reports, Toyota has over 100,000 pre-orders to fill for the Prius. Which means that as long as they keep building the Prius at this rate, they should stay atop the rankings for quite a while.
