By this point, pretty much everyone can identify a Toyota Prius by its shape, and knows that it's a hybrid-electric vehicle.
And most people know that Toyota sells many more hybrids as well.
But how many of them can you name?
Turns out that Toyota offers 23 separate and distinct hybrid models globally--many of which we don't get in the States--as we learned on the Toyota Hybrid World Tour media event.
So here's a little quiz for you.
Get a sheet of paper, and write "Toyota Prius" at the top.
Then write down as many Toyota and Lexus hybrid models as you can think of--the ones that are sold in your home market.
Draw a line.
Then add "Europe" and "Asia," or if you're outside "North America," add the two regions you don't live in.

See if you can think of any more hybrid models you know of.
Hint: They're not all cars.
We'll give you one freebie: the Toyota Crown Royal Saloon Hybrid, a large, ultra-cushy rear-wheel-drive four-door sedan for affluent "older gentlemen" in Japan.
We reviewed that car yesterday, and concluded it's essentially today's hybrid Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham.
Seriously, though: For green-car fans of any stripe, this may be an instructive exercise. How many Toyota and Lexus hybrid models CAN you name?
We've put the complete list--as confirmed by Toyota--on the second page of this article, starting with the models sold in North America (where many of our readers live).
