Toyota Prius v Is the Family Hybrid from America's First Family of Hybrids
Sep 02, 2015 - 5:02 PM - by Toyota Forum

Toyota offers the industry’s largest family of hybrid vehicles, so it’s only natural that it would produce a hybrid that caters to the whole family. That’s the Prius v, the largest and roomiest of Toyota’s Prius models. The v stands for versatility in this highly efficient vehicle, which features more cargo room than most small SUVs and offers estimated EPA fuel economy ratings of 44 mpg city, 40 mpg highway and 42 mpg combined.

When it comes to room, comfort and versatility, the Toyota Prius v puts family first. The seating position is higher than in sedans, giving a better view of the road ahead. There’s ample head- and legroom for five, plus 34.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the 60/40 split folding rear seats. With the seatbacks lowered, the space expands to a generous 67.3 cubic feet. Augmenting the larger main luggage compartment, storage units built into the sides and under the cargo platform can hold smaller items. The fold-flat front passenger seat allows the vehicle to carry longer items.

Rear passengers will find it especially easy to get in and out of the Prius v and load its cargo area thanks to a sliding second seat row. Once seated, they’ll appreciate the ability to recline the seatbacks up to 45-degrees. And they’ll enjoy the comfort of an... [Read More]

With 8 Million Units Sold, Toyota Proves Hybrids Have Staying Power
Aug 21, 2015 - 3:23 PM - by Toyota Forum

Toyota Chairman Takeshi Uchiyamada likes to tell the story of how his team couldn’t get the first Prius prototype to move for 49 days. According to him, “We had no idea what was wrong, so we worked late every night trying to figure it out. We finally got it to move around Christmas time, but it only went 500 meters!”

That was back in 1995, when hybrid cars were unproven, experimental machines with a very unclear future. Fast-forward twenty years, and Toyota is proud to announce that it has now sold over 8 million hybrid vehicles, with just 10 months between this and the last million-unit milestone.

It can be hard to get a sense of what the number 8 million might mean for the environment and for hybrid owners. For a bit of context, Toyota calculates that as of July 31, its hybrid vehicles have resulted in approximately 58 million fewer tons of CO2 emissions than would have been emitted by gasoline-powered vehicles of similar size and driving performance. Toyota also estimates that its hybrid vehicles have saved approximately 22 million kiloliters of gasoline compared to the amount used by gasoline-powered vehicles of similar sizes.

Toyota Mirai Sips a Summer Classic in 'Fueled by Lemonade'
Aug 21, 2015 - 2:54 PM - by Toyota Forum

Don’t pour out that lemonade. Toyota and comedian Nikki Glaser have taken a humorous look at a potential fuel source – discarded lemonade from kids' lemonade stands. And the lemonade stand business is tough out there.

The resulting video is “Fueled by Lemonade,” the third online video in Toyota’s multi-part “Fueled by Everything” series aimed at educating about the potential of hydrogen fuel. The campaign leads up to the arrival of the 2016 Toyota Mirai in select California dealerships in October. Continue reading and watch the video...

The Toyota Tacoma Dynasty rolls on! Rebuilt inside and out with an all-new powertrain and enhanced suspension tuning, America’s best-selling mid-size pickup for ten years running retains its throne on the mountaintop for dirt stomping adventurers. For decades, Toyota truck owners have come to expect the toughest, most durable pickup in the segment. The all-new Tacoma carries on a legacy of off-road victories and over seven million compact and mid-size Toyota trucks sold since 1964. It is, inside and out, the best Tacoma ever.

“For more than 50 years adventure-seeking Americans have relied on Toyota trucks to take them places, on and off-road,” said Bill Fay, group vice president & general manager, Toyota Division. “The all-new homegrown Tacoma is a tough truck designed, developed and built for lifestyles of the young and young-at-heart.” Continue reading...
