Japanese auto giant Toyota said Wednesday it had sold over 1.2 million hybrid cars around the world last year, more than doubling sales in the previous 12 months.
The company -- the world's biggest automaker -- said it had shifted around 1,219,000 million duel fuel cars, including green celebrities' favourite Prius.
The figure means around 14 percent of all vehicles Toyota sold last year were hybrids.
The home market, where subsidies for environmentally friendly cars were in place for much of calendar year 2012, accounted for more than half of the sales.
