Toyota sold 247,230 units of the Prius around the world, that too in the first quarter of this year. Doesn’t this look like a record? Yes it indeed is one.
That makes the automobile the world’s third-best-selling car model for the first three months of 2012. The sales were considerably higher in the US and Japan. So, Prius is now one among the most popular car models.
Well, if we dig further into these estimated rates, we can see this success is majorly because of the fact that new Prius models such as C, V and Plug-in were introduced.
Also, the Prius C has become the most popular one among the entire lot. The introduction of new models and increased sales are being seen as a “Prius surge’.
The cars that sold more during the first quarter of this year are the Toyota Corolla, which accounts for sales of 300,800 units and the Ford Focus, which sold 277,000 copies of the model.
