Toyota has just released their hybrid vehicle sales results for the year through October and the results are mixed. The Prius continue on a strong growth path with global sales up twenty-six percent although Japanese sales were stagnant. The Camry Hybrid is up forty-seven percent and the new Lexus LS600h is off to a strong start. Lexus dealers have already moved 6,093 examples of the $104,000 hybrid luxury sedan. The other two Lexus hybrids, the RX400h and the GS450h, are both down significantly, as is the Highlander hybrid. Highlander sales are probably due to lack of availability as production of the new 2008 model only recently started. Overall Toyota hybrid sales are up fourteen percent through October. Stay tuned here at AutoblogGreen in the next few weeks when we'll have a full review of the new 2008 Highlander hybrid in the ABG Garage.

      "Highlander sales are probably due to lack of availability as production of the new 2008 model only recently started"

      Is this speculation or based upon fact?

      No speculation. The 2008 Highlander hybrid only went on sale in late October.

      Dad,
      FYI, Sam has decades of experience in the auto industry (how many do you have?). Any of Sam's speculations are probably pretty much on the money. Besides, his "speculation" here is pretty reasonable. (This is quite unlike some other bloggers who make wild speculations without much experience or sources to back it up -go question them instead of Sam).
