Did you know that of all the new cars sold by your Ackerman Toyota St Louis car dealer, and all other new Toyota dealers today, 27 of them being offered at your local new and used car dealership are hybrid passenger car models and one is a plug in hybrid model. That is the case with a total of ninety different countries and regions. That makes for an impressive lineup of choices at your Toyota Cars Alton dealers in and around the Saint Louis MO area.
New Toyota cars actually account for 70% of the new car sales in hybrid vehicles. “In 2000, Toyota introduced its Prius hybrid to the U.S., a marquee vehicle that established mainstream adoption of hybrid technology. Today, Toyota and Lexus hybrid sales in the U.S. are well over 2 million, and the Prius is on its way to becoming the no. 1 selling vehicle in California for the third year in a row.” Those are some astounding facts to be quite proud of if you are a fan, representative or any type of advocate for Toyota’s new cars.
The new cars at your St. Louis Toyota Cars dealerships are certain that the way Toyota managed to reach this global mass market appeal is centered mainly on fuel consumption, or shall we say, the lack thereof? Overall, the fact that they, (new Toyota cars) have made such an enormous global wave and are well-known by basically all, means that their impact on the amount of gasoline consumed by the masses has been gigantic. Let’s not forget, either, the reduction in emissions that these new Toyota cars can take credit for as well. It has been reported that to date Toyota hybrid vehicles have resulted in approximately 49 million fewer tons* of CO2 emissions and saved 4.75 billion gallons of gas than would have been emitted or used by gasoline-powered vehicles of similar size and driving performance.
