Toyota’s Electrified Options

Twenty five years ago, Toyota started the hybrid electric revolution, driven by the idea of burning less fuel and the promise of cleaner air for tomorrow’s generation. Toyota is the world leaders in hybrid technology with more than 15 million hybrid drivers worldwide. Hybrids have better fuel efficiency than petrol cars and up to 90% less NOx than diesel cars.

Globally, Toyota's cumulative sales (HEV, PHEV, FCEV, BEV) reached 20 million units as of the end of February 2022. Toyota estimates that the use of Toyota's electrified vehicles has resulted in approximately 160 million fewer metric tonnes of CO2 emissions and has saved approximately 65 million kiloliters of gasoline as of the end of February 2022. Going forward, Toyota will continue to create ever-better cars with a full lineup of electrified vehicles for the realization of a carbon-neutral society. (Source)
