Toyota may still be a little resistant to electrified vehicles but the Prius Prime Plug-In is officially the world’s best-selling plug-in this year.
From January to June 2017, a total of 26,867 Prius Primes have been sold worldwide, just edging out the Nissan Leaf at 26,591 units and the Tesla Model S with 25,430 deliveries. Plug-in sales also show no signs of slowing down.
In fact, the all-new 2018 Nissan Leaf is just around the corner and will reach customer hands early next year. Additionally, deliveries of the Tesla Model 3 started a few days ago and the affordable Chevrolet Bolt continues to grow in popularity as it reaches more states throughout the United States.
InsideEVs reports that in the first half of the year, Tesla continues to lead the way as the highest-selling plug-in car manufacturer, delivering a total of 47,000 vehicles. Following Tesla is BMW with 41,715 sales, China’s BYD and BAIC with 34,802 and 30,151 deliveries respectively, Nissan in fifth with 29,055 and Toyota behind on 26,920.
