Mon dieu!

Toyota says it will sell 10,000 Yaris Hybrids in France after reporting a 46-percent jump in hybrid sales in the country, Technologic Vehicles reports, citing an interview with Toyota France CEO Pascal Ruch. Such sales volume would be about double what Toyota forecast for the Yaris Hybrid for this year.

Earlier this year, Toyota debuted the Yaris Hybrid at the Geneva Motor Show. The model, which has about 100 horsepower, delivers fuel economy of about 67 miles per gallon – on the slightly more lenient European driving cycle, at least.

In the US, Toyota has doubled hybrid sales through September compared to 2011 to almost 248,000 units. More than two-thirds of those are variants of the Prius.
