DEARBORN, Michigan — The 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid outsold the 2013 Toyota Prius V in October, according to sales numbers from both automakers.

Ford sold 3,182 C-Max Hybrids in the car's first full month of sales.

Toyota said it sold 2,769 Prius Vs in October.

Toyota sold 16,774 Prius vehicles in October 2012 versus 11,008 in October 2011, an increase of 52.4 percent. The Prius numbers include all Prius models, including the Prius V. Toyota has sold 200,114 Priuses calendar-year-to-date in the U.S.

Ford has been touting the competition between the C-Max Hybrid and the Prius V.

"The new C-Max is off to a fast start in the heart of the hybrid market, not only outselling Prius V, but drawing a lot of interested Toyota customers who chose our new hybrid instead," said C.J. O'Donnell, Ford Electrified Vehicles manager, in a statement on Friday.

Ford said that one in four C-Max Hybrids sold in October were sold in California, with Los Angeles as the best-selling region and San Francisco following in second.

Ford said its research shows that one-third of C-Max Hybrid customers in October said they cross-shopped the Toyota Prius and Prius V.

Edmunds says: Ford chalks up one win in October for its C-Max Hybrid, but those overall Prius numbers are pretty daunting.
