A record number of eco-friendly Toyota Prius vehicles were sold during the month of February, according to the manufacturer.

Toyota announced that a total of 538 Prius vehicles were sold last month - a figure that has more than doubled the previous February record of 237 in 2008.

It pointed out that the sales increase is a testament to the reliability and quality of Toyota vehicles, adding that a growing number of people are also recognising the benefits of hybrid technology.

Since the first generation of Prius vehicles was launched in 1997, some 1.6 million units have been sold. The current third-generation Prius has been shortlisted as one of the contenders for World Car Of The Year 2010.

Dubbed "the original hybrid car" by the manufacturer, the newest Prius comes with features such as solar-powered ventilation and Intelligent Parking Assist technology.ADNFCR-2576-ID-19661949-ADNFCR
