    -   TCI remains the preferred hybrid lineup choice of Canadians enjoying
        its best July ever for hybrid sales, at 1,280 (up 40.0%) thanks to
        the all-new Toyota Prius and Lexus RX 450h. TCI has now broken the

    Sales of "more power, less fuel" champions continued strong in July at
both Toyota and Lexus, as Canadians continue to look for high quality and
dependable choices. These include the world's most popular, extensive and
proven fleet of low-emissions hybrid cars and SUVs and made-in-Canada models
which now make up 50% of all Toyota and Lexus sales in Canada.
