    Year over year monthly sales of HEV/PHEV/FCV Toyota/Lexus vehicles were 31727 in July 2019, up 48.7% over July 2018 sales of 21334.

    Toyota has released its global sales results for July 2019. Sales, Production, and Export Results | Sales, Production, and Export Results | Profile | Company | Toyota Motor Corporation Official Global Website

    Obviously this is mostly due to the success of the new RAV4 Hybrid. In July, 13.1% of total Toyota/Lexus sales in North America were electrified (mostly hybrid). For 2018, the ratio was 8.9%.

    Worldwide sales of Toyota/Lexus electrified vehicles were 169883, up 19.1% over July 2018. Electrified vehicles made up 20% of Toyota/Lexus global sales in July.

    Prius sales have not been strong, except in Japan, but Toyota's other hybrids are selling better than ever. Whenever I see a RAV4 Hybrid, Camry Hybrid or Corolla Hybrid, I see a Prius. Someone is enjoying the efficient, reliable power train developed for the Prius. Toyota is making great progress penetrating the mainstream market with its hybrids.

    You can count me in that group. The Prime's 25-35 EV miles is enough for me to drive it like a BEV most weeks.

    My theory is because the website is created by " CBS Interactive Inc. " that this isn't an informative CNET review article at all, it's a perk CBS add into their advertising package and clearly Honda-Acura and Hyundai-Kia have spent the most money on advertising packages with CBS. And the article was assembled not by a journalist, but by a bot and then final edit done by the advertisers who don't want industry leaders of Tesla & Toyota distracting their customers. And what makes the site interactive is for advertisers, not the people reading the garbage website.

    Yet another reason why honest journalism like CNET used to be great but because we allow anti-trust laws to be broken constantly and look the other wa ywhen the big corporate monopolies like CBS buy up all the little guys and use them in dishonest ways... This garbage has got to stop!
