Reported US sales of hybrids in May 2008 declined 20% from May 2007 to 35,943 units. < on a non adjusted basis >

This drop is largely, but not solely, due to a 37% drop in sales of the Prius to 15,011 units in May 2008 from 24,009 units in May 2007.

< Prius sales fell -39.8% on an adjusted (dsr%) - daily sales rate basis. >


Toyota characterized the decline as due to “limited availability”.

The May 2008 figures also include sales of the Lexus LS600h and five hybrids from GM (Tahoe and Yukon two-modes, Saturn VUE, Saturn Aura and Chevy Malibu.) All percentage comparisons here are by total sales volume, not by adjusted day sales rate.
