    Toyota has announced it has sold its 400,000 hybrid in Europe - an Auris hybrid in Belgium. Ok, it's not on a par with US hybrid sales but it's still quite an achievement considering the poor sales about 5 years ago in some Countries here.

    An interesting point raised in the atricle was that 10% of all Toyota Europes sales are now hybrid.

    Yep GM a niche vehicle that will not sell. Take a look in the mirror GM, that is why you have problems and had to be bailed out.

    Yaris HSD and recently introduced Prius + should increase more sales.

    If the Yaris hybrid is priced competitively, it should help quite a bit as well.
