(Torrance, CA) — Toyota has sold its one-millionth Prius hybrid in the United States.

The announcement comes from Torrance, California-based Toyota Motor Sales USA.

In October, Toyota announced worldwide sales of the world's first mass-produced hybrid had passed the two-million mark.

Overall Toyota hybrid sales, which include the four-door Camry, Highlander SUV and Prius, surpassed three-million worldwide in March.

Toyota claims the Prius has accounted for more than 60-percent of all worldwide hybrid passenger car sales this year.

The original Prius first hit dealer showrooms in 2000.
