When it comes to global environmental leadership, the number of vehicles that customers buy around the world have a greater impact than the number of concept cars launched at motor shows. Toyota Motor Corporation announced today that it reached a major milestone in annual sales of electrified powertrains in 2017 with over 1.52 million sold worldwide.

The figure was an increase of eight percent over the prior record set in 2016, marking back-to-back years of growth and accomplishing one of Toyota's Environmental Challenge 2050 targets, selling more than 1.5 million electrified vehicles in a single year, three years in advance of the original target set for 2020.

Additionally, cumulative sales of electrified vehicles now exceed 11.47 million, which represents a reduction of more than 90 million tonnes of CO
2 compared to sales of equivalent conventional vehicles. To achieve its goal, Toyota unveiled plans to have 10 battery electric vehicle models available worldwide by the early 2020s, and from around 2025, the company aims to have an electrified version available for all vehicle models across its global lineup.
