Sales of Toyota’s popular Prius took a big dip last month, falling nearly 25 percent compared with the same month last year. Year to date sales for the Prius hybrid are also about 10.4 percent behind last year’s pace. Regardless of the slip, the Prius still sold more than any other hybrid in the month of April by a large margin. For example, while Toyota is being quiet about the Prius only selling 8,234 units last month, Ford’s been shouting from the rafters that sales of its Escape and Mariner Hybrid SUVs increased by 115 percent to 3,420 units in April.

Thanks Igor for the asute eye!
