Clean and Green Machines: 3 Eco-Friendly Toyota Hybrid ModelsBy marian on July 29th, 2015
Toyota is one of the world’s leading car manufacturers when it comes to environmental awareness. Proof of this is in the vehicles they make, and it’s not just the Toyota Fortuner and the Toyota Altis that’s popular in the Philippines. They’re also known for producing hybrid cars. With at least two power sources, these rides are eco-friendly and fuel-efficient, and can perform just as well as a regular car if not better. Get to know three of Toyota’s clean and green sets of wheels below.
Whether you’re a car enthusiast or a tree-hugger, you’ve probably already heard about the Toyota Prius. This compact car, which took the world by storm back in 2000, became more popular as the issue global warming became worse. Rightfully so, because it boasts of fuel efficiency and eco-friendliness without having to sacrifice performance and mileage, thanks to its hybrid engine.
Through the years, three other variants of the Prius have sprung up. There is the Prius c, a hatchback that is cost-friendlier than the original. It’s a convenient vehicle, as its size is enough for a small family, and it’s perfect for those with small parking spaces. There is also the Prius v, the one with the most room among the four, as it offers 50% more interior cargo space than the original. And lastly and perhaps the most revolutionary among them would be the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid. This type of car allows you to either rely on fuel for long distances or completely on electric power, which can be charged via wall plug, in shorter ones. And if you think it’s going to eat dust, then prepared to be amazed with its electric-only top speed of 100km/h—definitely fast on anybody’s book.
Toyota Avalon Hybrid
Avalon is a mysterious island in the Arthurian legend, and the Toyota car named after it is also on its way to becoming a legend in its own right, thanks to its performance and elegance. And now, in this day and age, the Toyota Avalon is helping the fight against global warming. Moreover, the 2015 Toyota Avalon will be featuring a hybrid engine, making it more eco-friendly. But don’t worry, fans! It will not compromise the features that made it appealing to brand loyalists and car enthusiasts.
Toyota Camry Hybrid
Among its recent models, the Toyota Camry is one of the more popular ones, selling millions of its units across the globe. Just like the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, this clean and green version of the Toyota Camry promises the same performance while offering greater fuel efficiency and less carbon dioxide emissions. Not only would you have a cool ride, but you’ll also have a planet-friendly one! So if you don’t have this marvelous machine yet but have qualms of doing so because of environmental reasons, then why don’t you give the Toyota Camry Hybrid a test drive?
The automobile industry is getting a whole lot greener, thanks to Toyota. And with their eco-friendly rides, you can be a part of this planet-changing movement.
