Brand with a plan

What if I was to tell you that in the future there would be a car that is so smart that when you applied the brakes it would charge a battery pack so you harnessed some of the energy you used to get up to speed? That’s right, it will be called “regenerative braking”. Then when you applied the accelerator the electric motor would utilise this power but if you needed lots of power very quickly a highly efficient Atkinson Cycle engine would kick in at the same time powering the vehicle forward.

At stop lights, the vehicle would use only battery power to run the radio, air conditioner, lights and fan creating with the vehicle creating zero C02 emissions. What if I told you this car could do many hundreds of thousands of kilometres with little more than regular maintenance? What if I told you Governments around the world would to continue to cap C02 emissions from motor vehicles and that manufacturers would be rushing to get hold of and develop this technology?

Well, what if I told you Toyota has been producing this technology for over twenty years and has sold more than one million of these remarkable vehicles worldwide and they are now well into their third generation of Hybrid technology. It’s all true and the extraordinary range of efficient Toyota hybrid vehicles with outstanding performance continues to grow. Toyota, that brand with a plan.
