Since 2003, hybrid cars have grown into one of the U.S. vehicle market’s fastest growing segments. Toyota doubled its flagship hybrid car’s allocation in North America in 2005, to 100,000, and started building hybrids on U.S. assembly lines in 2006. By the end of 2006 there were some 15 hybrid models on showroom floors, from various car makers, including hybrid models for such popular vehicles as the Toyota Camry.

- Note: Miles per gallon estimates are those provided by the United States Environmental Protection Agency and are the 2008 revision of the original numbers.
- Hybrid access to US HOV lanes varies by US state. Factors can include total/average miles per gallon rating from the US EPA, type of technology used, and/or date of vehicle registration with the relevant state authorities. (Several states have begun restricting HOV lane access by hybrid and clean-fuel vehicles due to crowding.)
- Traction battery power is the amount of power available from the electric portion of the Powertrain without the aid of the Internal combustion engine (ICE). This is generally limited by the Traction battery rather than the electric motor(s).
