Ford hybrid car sales to be higher than ever in US, but Toyota still dominates


Hybrid car sales in the US have been dominated by Toyota’s Prius family — but that could be changing as demand for Ford’s Fusion and C-Max hybrids continues to sharply rise. Bloomberg reports that the automaker’s share of US hybrid vehicle sales rose from three percent in April 2012 to 18 percent last month. Though Toyota still took in over half of April’s sales, it’s the only manufacturer ahead of Ford at this point. Ford is also on track to beat its own record for yearly hybrid sales — 35,496 vehicles — sometime this month.

Even so, it still has a ways to go to catch up with Toyota. Last year, the Japanese automaker sold over 236,000 hybrids in the US, and according to Bloomberg it expects to sell more than that in 2013. Sales…

Inhabitat’s Week in Green: algae-powered building, 3D-printing vending machine and the Toyota i-Road concept

Each week our friends at Inhabitat recap the week’s most interesting green developments and clean tech news for us — it’s the Week in Green.

DNP Inhabitat's Week in Green TKTKTK

Now that green design is entering the mainstream, we’re beginning to see the design community tackle larger, more ambitious projects using eco-friendly techniques. Case in point: This week, San Francisco transformed the Bay Bridge into the world’s largest light sculpture by outfitting it with 25,000 LED lights. Because the lights are so energy-efficient, it will cost just $ 15 per night to run the installation. In Hamburg, workers are putting the finishing touches on the world’s first algae-powered building, which is set to open this month at the International Building Exhibition. A company in Tokyo recently demonstrated a new skyscraper deconstruction technique that harvests energy from the demolition process and salvages almost every piece of the building for reuse. And in Copenhagen, work has begun on a combined ski resort and waste-to-energy plant, which will convert the city’s trash into energy that powers the resort.

Toyota i-Road EV concept leans like a motorcycle, won’t soak you or your wallet

Toyota iRoad EV concept leans like a motorcycle, minus the fuel bills and rain

Automakers like to trot out urban-only EV cars, if in some cases just in their dreams, but there’s usually gotchas: think disproportionately huge turning circles and a lack of basic defense from the aspects. Toyota’s new i-Road idea could not be predestined for manufacturing, but it a minimum of pays more than lip service to reality. The two-seat, three-wheel prototype turns with a motorcycle-style lean, cutting its turn radius to a really city-friendly 9.8 feet. It likewise has a completely secured cabin, which allows for such radical functions as heating and speakers. We do not see numerous Design S owners having second thoughts when the i-Road runs out of energy in simply 31 miles, however that’s not the point. It’s even more of an option to bikes, compact EVs and scooters that does not demand frequent fuel pump sees … or a good raincoat.

A Wild Reckless Driver Appears!: Toyota Pokemon Cars


This is a series of Pokemon character vehicles developed by Toyota and Japanese toy creator Takara Tomy as some kind of weird-ass cross deal. And speaking of cross offers: warm sauce and extra-absorbent toilet paper. It just makes sense.

Japanese toy creator Takara Tomy is running a campaign this summer with Toyota dealerships to hand out Pokémon mini toy cars as part of a deal with the brand-new Pocket Monsters characteristic movie.

Recently, actual versions of the cars were on display.

Ah yes, the old “Have parents provide their little ones to the dealership for a free of charge toy then force them to purchase a minivan” technique. That’s classic Car Sales 101 right there. Additionally, not zipping your pants so the buyer feels sorry for you. Honey, the bad bastard’s wearing novelty Christmas boxers in June, the least we can easily do is purchase a motorcycle.

Hit the jump for the others.
