A Beautiful Story to Tell!

Since 1997, the international company located in the city of Toyota in Japan has been focusing its energies on new advanced technologies. However, the Japanese manufacturer is certainly a leader in the field of environmental protection and the fight against greenhouse gases (GHGs).

The company's engineers have developed an impressive range of plug-in hybrid cars. Today, their hybrid vehicle is available in multiple versions and its list of achievements is impressive - think the Prius, Camry, RAV4, Highlander and the all-new 2020 Corolla Hybrid. These embody Japanese ingenuity at its finest, and upcoming features will continue to inspire Toyota for years to come.

Thanks to the evolution of the Synergy Drive hybrid system, Toyota is now a world leader in hybrid cars. As soon as it was launched, the Prius was named New Car of the Year in 1997 and 1998. Subsequently, this car was sold on a large scale all over the world. Consumers were quickly won over and the Prius evolved with an upgrade of its hybrid system from THS to THS II and a higher performing electric engine.

In 2007, hybrid vehicles reached another level of development. Their worldwide sales exceeded one million. In 2009, Toyota launched its third-generation Prius featuring a more efficient 1.8-litre hybrid engine with lower CO2 output (89g/km).

From 2010 onwards, the Japanese auto maker accelerated its production of hybrid vehicles. Over the years, it rose to the top of the list and by 2016, Toyota was selling 80% of the world's hybrid vehicle fleet. This figure is impressive and shows that the Japanese manufacturer's progress has paid off.
