No doubt that the auto industry is on an impressive rebound, and hybrid sales are racking up big dividends as gas prices continue to climb.

Toyota sold over 54,600 hybrids, far and away the leader, while Honda moved 84% more hybrids, or 11,354 hybrids from dealer lots, with Ford came in a distant third, with a 9% hybrid sale increase, sell over 7,700 “advanced technology vehicles.”
