Since the release of the very first hybrid automobile in the world, the Toyota Prius in 1997, Toyota as a company never ceased to concern itself with its environmental impact.
In Canada, Toyota keeps innovating while keeping an eye on environment protection. As an example:
- More than 90% of waste coming from the Canadian headquarters are diverted from landfill.
- 100% of Canadian locations are ISO 14001 certified (environmental management system).
- The Canadian headquarters reduced its paper consumption by 65%.
On our side at Sherbrooke Toyota, we didn’t rest on our laurels. We use green building principles to help design, build, renovate and manage our facilities in a more sustainable way.
As for the vehicles we have for sale, most of them are as ecologically safe as the Prius. As a matter of fact, since 1997, Toyota’s hybrid range prevented the emission of more than 94 million tons of CO2 on a global scale. We’re done with polluting and consuming SUVs, partly thanks to the hydrogen fuel cell that allows you to save both on maintenance and gas while you have a lower environmental impact.
To choose a hybrid Toyota vehicle is to choose the easy way and ecological awareness. Prius Prime for example helps to save big while being very easy to recharge as it only requires a domestic 120V plug. Moreover, it offers among the quickest charge time in its category. And you don’t even need to buy any extra equipment to plug it in.
You’re also in charge of the way you want to drive your vehicle. You can indeed go the all electric way enjoying a certain battery-life and a close-to-zero environmental impact. The hybrid mode, on the other hand, will allow you to drive far longer while saving a lot on gas. Whether it is with a SUV like the RAV4 hybrid or Highlander hybrid, or with a sedan like the Prius Prime or the Camry hybrid, you’re set and decide the way you want to enjoy your Toyota.
