How Toyota is Reducing its Carbon Footprint

Toyota has long been a leader in environmentally friendly transportation, but in the past few years the iconic Japanese automaker has been doing even more to reduce its carbon footprint and help drivers get where they are going. From the introduction of new and newly redesigned hybrid vehicles to an even greater dedication to smart technology and environmental protection, Toyota is leading the way to a greener future.
 
When Toyota first introduced the Prius hybrid more than a decade ago, some in the automotive industry scoffed at the vehicle and predicted it would be a failure in terms of sales and long-term reliability. The enduring popularity and low cost of ownership of the Prius has proven the critics wrong, and now Toyota is going even further.
 
In an ongoing effort to make its carbon footprint as light as possible, Toyota is introducing even more hybrid vehicles and improving the fuel economy of its entire fleet. Drivers who want to help the environment are no longer confined to a traditional sedan. Thanks to Toyota and its advances in automotive and hybrid technology, drivers can now choose from a variety of environmentally friendly vehicles, from practical SUVs to full-size luxury sedans.
 
Lovers of luxury cars have long been asking for a hybrid version of the popular Toyota Avalon, and the folks at Toyota have responded by introducing a hybrid version of the iconic vehicle. All the luxury features are still there, including a powerful engine, a roomy interior and a cockpit that features intuitive controls and all the latest technology.
 
Drivers who choose the hybrid version of the Toyota Avalon can enjoy stellar fuel economy as they hit the highway and make the daily commute. The Toyota Avalon hybrid gets an impressive 40 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway, making it one of the most efficient vehicles in its class.
 
The hybrid version of the Toyota Camry is just impressive – in terms of both fuel economy and standard features. The Camry has long been one of the most popular vehicles on the road, and drivers had been clamoring for a hybrid version of the vehicle.
 
Now that hybrid is hitting dealer showrooms, and drivers are responding. The Toyota Camry hybrid is also one of the leading vehicles in its class in terms of fuel economy, with up to 43 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway.
 
SUV buyers have long felt left out as they shopped for a more environmentally responsible ride. The average SUV may be practical and powerful, but it does not exactly have a low carbon footprint.
 
That is why Toyota has been working hard to change the image of the SUV. Its RAV4 hybrid may do just that, with its exceptional fuel economy, powerful energy and ample room for drivers and passengers.
 
The Toyota RAV4 hybrid gets an impressive 34 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. That makes the vehicle one of the most fuel efficient SUVs on the market and a fitting addition to the Toyota stable of hybrid vehicles.
 
If you want to reduce your own carbon footprint and do something great for the environment, just head down to your local Toyota dealer to see the entire lineup of hybrid vehicles. Toyota has long been a leader in environmental responsibility, and the automaker remains committed to helping drivers enjoy a cleaner and greener future.
