Toyota doesn’t break down sales separately for what are now four Prius vehicles, but suffice it to say things are going gangbusters with its line of gas/electric powered hybrids. Combined sales were up by over 210 percent in May, compared to the same month in 2011 and posted a 72.9 percent boost over the first five months of 2012. In shortest supply, at an average of nine days' stock, is the new subcompact Prius c. It’s based on the Toyota Yaris, and while it only generates the equivalent of 99 horsepower, it’s estimated to get a stellar 53/46 mpg, which gives it the same 50-combined mpg as the larger and more powerful Prius.
