Toyota’s Prius Keeps Top California Sales Rank

Toyota Motor Corp.’s Prius hybrid was the best-selling vehicle line in California for the second year in a row in 2013, as Tesla Motors Inc.’s Model S claimed third place among luxury cars, according to a market report.

Sales of Toyota’s four-model Prius line were 69,728 in the state, the biggest U.S. market for new cars and trucks, ahead of Honda Motor Co.’s Civic, based on the California Auto Outlook report issued by the California New Car Dealers Association yesterday. Model S sales were 8,347, behind Daimler AG’s Mercedes E-Class and Bayerische Motoren Werke AG’s BMW 5-Series sedans. Tesla’s $71,000 car wasn’t among 2012’s top sellers.
