Japan world’s biggest market for home-grown petrol-electric hybrids

Japan H1 2018 car sales by fuel split

AID investigates this year’s Japanese car sales trends and finds that Toyota’s home market still stands out as the world’s way and ahead biggest market for petrol-electric hybrid (HEVs) cars. Put into perspective, this first half Japan’s HEV market was more than three-times the size of its direct US HEV equivalent, which like Japan and Europe remains dominated by Toyota Group products

Expressed in numbers, during this year’s first half, which saw a 2.3 per cent drop in Japan’s overall new car sales, sales of Prius-type HEVs fell by a slightly steeper 4.8 per cent to 566,931 units, according to Japan’s Automotive Dealer Association (JADA). 

Despite the faster than average fall in Japan’s HEV sales, including a 7.8 per cent drop in June sales, this first half HEVs were still responsible for almost every fourth new car sold in Japan. 

Put into context, this compares with a lacklustre 1.9 per cent HEV share in the US this first half and a higher 3.5 per cent sales share in Western Europe this first quarter, according to Acea.
