Toyota has announced that it has sold over 20 million electrified vehicles, including hybrid and battery electric cars. Included in the figure are subsidiary brands Daihatsu and Hino. Other record figures in the February 2022 statement include the greatest number of Toyota vehicles produced and sold outside of Japan in a month.

In its monthly sales update, Toyota has announced that it has sold over 20 million electric and hybrid vehicles. The figure includes hybrid, plug-in hybrid, fuel cell and battery electric vehicles. Also included are electrified cars from subsidiary brands like Daihatsu and Hino.

The company estimated that around 160 million metric tons of CO2 emissions and about 65 million kiloliters of gasoline were saved by customers driving its electrified vehicles. Other recent records include the number of cars sold outside Japan in a month, which reached 620,360 across the Toyota brands in February. Despite the continued parts shortage, the company also produced a record number of vehicles outside Japan in the month.

In the statement, Toyota vowed to continue to develop new electric vehicles, though it did not give any further details. The first all-electric car from the brand will be the bz4x SUV which is due to launch this year.

Shortly after these monthly numbers were released, rumors circulated that Toyota would be pulling out of UK manufacturing. One source reported that the cause was the UK government's plans to shift more rapidly to fully electric vehicles. However, Toyota has denied these rumors.
