There’s no hiding from the hybrid message. Finally, other car manufacturers are catching on to the fact that hybrid really is the here and now. Economical, kinder to the planet and more efficient for customers, when it comes to choosing your next car, it’s a no brainer. This is not news to Toyota who first introduced hybrid vehicles 20 years ago. We are the global leaders when it comes to hybrid technology and have been promoting the benefits since our very first Prius hybrid back in 1995.
