Thinking of taking the plunge and investing in a hybrid this year? If so, there has never been a better time to do so, because not only has hybrid technology improved dramatically in recent years, but the supporting infrastructure (such as charging stations) has spread far and wide. Here we will take a brief look at some of the many other reasons to invest in a hybrid this year.
Reduce your environmental impact
One of the best ways to reduce your impact on the environment is to drive a little greener and Toyota hybrids make it easy to do just that. Everything from their aerodynamic design and driving mode options to their use of the award-winning Hybrid Synergy Drive system are designed to ensure that your ride runs as cleanly and efficiently as possible at all times. Furthermore, Regenerative Braking ensures that energy normally lost is captured and saved for future use.
Hybrid vehicles can save you money in more ways than one, because aside from their amazing fuel efficiency levels (which can mean requiring as little as 4.9L/100km in the city and 5.5L/100km on the highway) Toyota hybrids are eligible for thousands of dollars in rebates and federal tax credits. Even the core components of the vehicle are designed to last longer than ever before; for example, Toyota’s hybrid batteries are now covered by an 8 year/160,000km warranty.
Improve your driving
Your driving habits play a big role in how fuel efficient your ride can run, which is why Toyota hybrids are designed to actively train you to drive a little greener. By providing real-time data on how things like your acceleration and braking style are impacting your fuel efficiency, it is easy to identify those driving habits that are most in need of change, not to mention track your efforts to improve.
Enjoy the latest tech
You won’t find many vehicles more high tech than Toyota hybrids, because apart from all of those amazingly efficient features, these impressive vehicles boast everything from a Backup Camera, Bluetooth functionality and Touch Tracer Controls right through to text and email-to-speech capabilities. A few of the many other high tech highlights available include Power Adjustable and Heated Mirrors, Lane Departure Alerts, Keyless Entry, Push Button Start, and LED Fog Lamps.
Make a statement
Investing in an eco-friendly vehicle is a fantastic way to show that you care about protecting the environment, which is a particularly wise move if you have clients, peers, or business partners you want or need to impress. Furthermore, showing your friends, family, or kids that you believe in reducing your impact on the environment is a marvellous way to encourage them to do the same.
