Toyota Prius Best-Selling Car in Japan for August
Toyota’s Prius was the top selling car in Japan during August. This happends for the 16th consequetive month and is mainly explained from local incentives which have driven further more demand for hybrid cars.
The Prius, Toyota Motor Corp.’s best-selling gasoline-gas hybrid, sold 22,263 of the cars during August 2010.
However, sales of Prius in August, were the lowest ones during the year and there worries that sales may further lower as government incentives will stop during the end of this month in Japan.
Prius still remained Toyota’s best seller model despite massive global recalls for issues including faulty floor mats and defective gas pedals.
