Ireland – 6-months 2012, hybrid sales: Up 25% with Auris at the top

The Toyota Auris hybrid

Hybrid sales are still up in Ireland for the 6 first months of the year, even though the market is globally down, again (-13,5% compared to 2011). The market share of the Hybrid category is up from 0,53% last year to 0,77% this year to date.

The Auris is growing very strong with 193 sales, followed by the Prius (118) and the CT 200h from Lexus (82). Newcomers this spring are the Lexus GS 450h (15 first sales) and the Diesel-powered Citroën DS5 (4 sales).

Later this year should be launched the Toyota 7-seater Prius+, the Prius Plug-in and the Yaris HSD. We don’t know yet if the Peugeot 508 RXH will come this year or for the 2013 model year.
