new Scion iQ in OrlandoAt Toyota of Orlando, we offer a large assortment of environmentally friendly cars that integrate hybrid technology, so you’re getting a performance that not only cuts down on harmful emissions, but also saves you major money at the gas pump. We have a wide range of hybrid cars, including the entire Orlando Toyota Prius family, as well as the Toyota Camry Hybrid and Toyota Highlander Hybrid in Orlando… and we’re eagerly awaiting the arrival of the 2013 Toyota Avalon, which will also have the option of hybrid technology. However, we just discovered that Scion is getting in on the go-green game – they’ve recently announced they’ll be creating an electric Scion iQ in Orlando for environmentally conscientious Toyota drivers in Central Florida!

The new electric Scion iQ in Orlando will launch in Japan and the US, but only a small number will be available. Trust us – our Orlando Toyota dealership would love to get our hands on one of these innovative and eco-friendly subcompact hatchbacks, as we’re already huge fans of the 2013 Scion iQ in Orlando! The electric Scion iQ will feature a 63 horsepower electric motor, which will allow it to accelerate up to speeds of 77mph and travel up to 62 miles on a charge! The forecasted cost of the new electric Scion iQ? A bit steeper than its gasoline predecessor – it’s being predicted that this electric model of the Orlando Toyota Scion iQ will start at around $46,150!

Why is Toyota of Orlando so excited to see an electric version of the 2013 Scion iQ in Central Florida? Like we said, we’re big advocates of this city friendly car that’s the contested rival of other makes, like the Fiat 500 and the SmartForTwo. It’s a subcompact option that’s small enough to easily maneuver tight parking spots and tangled traffic situations, but it still has the ability to seat up to four passengers and offers a small cargo space in the rear, as well as an under-seat storage tray for extra odds and ends. Additionally, the 2013 Scion iQ in Orlando offers outstanding fuel efficiency, pulling in 36mpg in the city and 37mpg on the highway – that’s almost the same as some Orlando Toyota Hybrid cars!
