Toyota gets 100,000 orders for new Prius

posted on January 20, 2016

Toyota Motor Corp. said Monday that the number of orders received for its fully revamped Prius hybrid had reached 100,000 units in the first month of its release.

The figure, as of Sunday, is over eight times more than the company's monthly sales goal of 12,000 units.
The fourth-generation Prius was launched on Dec. 9.

As the pace of orders has outstripped production, delivery times are estimated at six or seven months for consumers who order the Prius at the moment.

Some 80 percent of Prius buyers are men, with orders most often received from consumers in their 60s and older, according to Toyota.
