Seeing as how the Toyota Prius is the single most recognizable hybrid in the world, it's not hard to imagine that the Toyota Prius Plug-In would hit the ground with its wheels screeching to beat out its well-established competition within the quickly-expanding plug-in hybrid marketplace. Specifically, the all-new Prius Plug-In outsold both the Volt and LEAF in April, as combined sales of the Prius Family of Cars continues to impress automotive critics around the world.
And just how many units did the 2012 Toyota Prius Plug-In sell in total last month? 1,654. And that's only a fraction of the total number of combined Prius sales in April. That number is an incredible 25,168 units, which marks not only a 126.9-percent increase in sales over the same time from last year, but also the single best sales month for Toyota hybrids ever.
And while some could claim that this increased interest in the Toyota Prius Family of Cars is only thanks to rising gas prices, Marion Toyota would argue that there are a number of other merits to the Prius name other than fuel economy. For instance, the Toyota Prius Plug-In has been cited as having the "Lowest Maintenance Costs" in its class according to IntelliChoice and named the "Best Car to Buy for 2012" by GreenCarReports.com. Meanwhile, the original Toyota Prius has earned a "Five-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and a 2012 Insurance Institute for Highway Safety "Stop Safety Pick" designation.
