Great news on the hybrid front – the numbers were just released, and results show that Toyota and Lexus hybrids made up 2 million of the 5 million hybrid vehicles sold in the US! Additionally, Toyota was pleased to report that they have sold 5 million hybrid vehicles on a worldwide scale! They estimated further that these incredible cars resulted in 34 million fewer tons of CO2 emissions than traditional gasoline vehicles out on the road. Why is this important? Basically, CO2 emissions are a big factor in the formation of smog, which is a problem in many cities. Every time you hop behind the wheel of your new Toyota in Orlando, you’re doing your part to help stop the formation and release of these harmful emissions! Toyota of Orlando couldn’t be prouder to offer these exceptional modes of transportation.
Oh, and did we mention fuel efficiency? Hybrids are renowned for saving their owners tons of money at the gas pump because they switch back and forth between the electric motor and gasoline engine under the hood. This means that most of them get upwards of 40 mpg with ease and help cut costs in fuel. Toyota is estimating that their fleet of hybrids – which at this point includes 20 different vehicles worldwide – have saved drivers over 3 billion gallons of gas!
Obviously, there are a ton of benefits to owning one of these innovative vehicles. So, what hybrid options are available to you in the US? Let’s take a look, starting out with the Orlando Toyota Prius family!
The family is composed of three hybrids and one electric plug-in:
- 2013 Toyota Prius
- 2013 Toyota Prius c
- 2013 Toyota Prius v
- 2013 Toyota Prius Plug-in
All three hybrids offer incredible features; you’ll love the new technology and style that Toyota has integrated into them. The Orlando Toyota Prius is the frontrunner and the hybrid that kicked off the entire movement, and it’s the best-selling hybrid in the world – you can’t really go wrong with it. The Toyota Prius c is a smaller and more urban-friendly option that’s great for drivers looking for something more compact (let’s face it, city parking can be hard to come by). The Toyota Prius v, on the other hand, is a larger hybrid that’s better-suited for families – you’ll find incredible amounts of cargo space on the interior, as well as innovative safety technology.
