Gettin' Hot

The Toyota Prius has officially surpassed the 1 million mark, providing more proof to my previous claim that the hybrid/EV market is heating up. Through April, Prius sales are up 7% this year in the UK and Toyota will expand their sales to include South Korea in late 2009.

For those of you wondering just how much of an impact hybrids and EV's have on limiting emissions and how cars contribute to global warming, Toyota also announced in the article that the Prius has produced "approximately 4.5 million sq. tons less CO2 when compared with conventional petrol-powered vehicles in the same class and of similar size and driving performance."
