Toyota announced today that it has sold a total of 4 million hybrids around the world through April 2012. That’s pretty outstanding in the grand scheme of things.

The Japanese automaker said that hybrid vehicles accounted for 15 percent of its global sales so far in 2012. The company currently sells 18 hybrid vehicles in 80 countries and regions around the world.

Since the Toyota Prius arrived in the United States back in 2000, the U.S. division of the company has accounted for 1.5 million hybrid vehicle sales.
