    My take of the (arguably) big One in the big 3 markets :

    Europe: Over 1/2 of Toyota's sales in $6+/gal europe was of a hybrid variety.

    China: Oil poor China is pushing (mandating) EVs, .. China (like the US) has (and is building) LOTS of long distance "interstate" highway" (and, unlike the US a bazillion new coal plants). Unless the battery tech improves soon, .. I think China may have to change the emphasis

    US: Unless you live in the PRC, .. fuel is relatively cheap -- very tough to make an economic case for hybrids (let alone EVs), ... Californians* see it different.

    *I don't have any problem with California doing what California needs to do. I do have a problem with the most UN-green state in the union telling the other 49 how to be green.

    China's EV policy is also pushing hybrids. A car company needs to offer some BEVs, but all their models will have to be at least a mild hybrid.

    Hi All:

    [​IMG] Toyota Canada reported November 2019 sales of 19,089 vehicles, up 1.9 percent with both the Toyota and Lexus setting monthly sales records.

    TCI reported its eighth straight month of record electrified vehicle sales (2,785 units, up 36.6 percent) as more Canadians are finding a Toyota or Lexus hybrid or plug-in hybrid vehicle that meets their needs.

    2020 Toyota Prius Prime


    The Prius Prime plug-in hybrid electric vehicle achieved sales of 682 vehicles, up 204.5 percent!

    Total Prius sales of 860 vehicles were up 140.2 percent over the 358 sold in November of 2018. YTD sales of 8,159 vehicles is up 56.9 percent over the 5,199 sold through the same period of 2018. The made-in-Canada RAV4 Hybrid achieved November 2019 sales of 1,102 vehicles, up 34.7 percent. Both of these models set November records. TCI’s YTD electrified vehicle sales of 32,903 is up 47.9 percent compared to the same period last year.

    The RAV4, RAV4 Hybrid, Lexus RX and RX Hybrid, which together make up nearly one third of TCI’s vehicle sales, are all made in Canada.

    At the same time, the least fuel-efficient offerings in the Toyota lineup are outselling the efficient hybrid lineup by multiple orders of magnitude. TCI truck sales of 13,229 units, were up 9.3 percent in November, also a new record.
