Are you a lover of the environment that's been wondering what the best "green" vehicle is? According to GreenCarReports.com, one vehicle doesn't hold the title; the whole Toyota Prius Family does. Impressive isn't it? The judges couldn't decide between which of the four current Prius models was the most impressive, so they choose all of them. Along with the fourth generation standard Toyota Prius, the Toyota Prius v, the Toyota Prius Plug-In, and the Toyota Prius C were included in the award. What makes this award even more amazing is that the latter two models won't be released until this spring!
Of course, the Prius models weren't chosen just because the Prius family is growing; they were also chosen because of their light carbon footprints and excellent fuel economies. For example, the original Toyota Prius boasts an exceptional 51 mpg in the city and 48 mpg on the highway. The Prius v is also impressive; it gets up to 44 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway, while allowing ample storage space for all of its passengers and their belongings. The new Prius C will bring 50 mpg in the city, which is more than any other non-plug-in model on the market, and the Prius Plug-In Hybrid is slated to get 87 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent) combined when in electric mode and 49 mpg combined while in hybrid mode.
This latest award is just one of many honoring the Toyota Prius family. Are you interested in lessening your own carbon footprint? Well then, stop by and arrange a test drive at R & H Toyota, located at 9801 Reisterstown Road Owings Mills, MD 21117 and drive away in a new Prius today!
