PSA: Toyota Prius has been Japan’s top-selling car for 18 straight months thumbnail

Filed under: Hybrid , Toyota , Japan 2010 Toyota Prius – Click above for high-res image gallery The Toyota Prius has been the top-selling vehicle in its home market of Japan since its redesign in 2009 for the 2010 model year, due partly to a series of incentives created by the Japanese government to promote fuel efficient vehicles – more specifically, hybrids.

2010 Toyota Prius – Click above for high-res image gallery We’ve been following the development of Toyota’s plant in Tupelo, Mississippi with interest since the automaker first broke ground at the site in 2006, mostly because this is the location where the Highlander Hybrid SUV or Prius hybrid hatchback were supposed to be built here in the United States.
