Now, don't get too excited because a new record actually means that Toyota sold a total of 538 units in February. We're not going to comment on these results or on any of Toyota's statement regarding this matter, but here's what the Japanese manufacturer has to say on this topic.
"The Toyota Prius February sales total of 538 units serves as further proof that UK motorists have faith in Toyota quality and reliability and acknowledge the real-world benefits delivered by Hybrid Synergy Drive."
For the sake of comparison, we'll tell you that this February's figures are more than double as compared to the same month of the previous year when only 237 Priuses were sold.
Obviously, Toyota is trying anything that's possible to bring its cars back in the best-selling vehicles top, but all efforts seem to be counterbalanced by accidents and crashes involving the Prius.
Today, it has emerged that a woman driving a Prius on a New York driveway hit a wall after the accelerator pedal got stuck. Fortunately, she suffered only non life-threatening injuries but, on the other hand, this is a new sign that faulty models are still out there, putting the life of their drivers at risk.
