Expanding Toyota Prius Collection Receives Green Award
With high levels of market competition, you may find yourself wondering which vehicle is the greenest of them all. Well, Lustine Toyota is here to tell you that there isn't just one...there's a whole lineup of fantastic, eco-friendly rides for you to choose from. Which lineup may that be? None other than the rapidly expanding Toyota Prius family of course.
GreenCarReports.com recently voted the entire Prius collection to be its 2012 "Best Green Car to Buy." Garnering the award is superb in itself. But what really gets us going is the fact that in the case of this award, Toyota forced judges to bend the rules. Normally only one vehicle receives the spotlight. Hence the name best green car, not cars. When faced with the Prius gang, however, auto examiners couldn't bring themselves to pick just one as all displayed equal brilliance.
Specifically, the green lineup was selected based on the following criteria:- Integration of the latest technologies
- Low impact on the environment
- Practicality on the road
- High gas mileage
In addition, John Voelcker, Green Car Reports Editor, points out that, "the Prius name is likely to help encourage buyers to take the plunge into plug-in vehicles."1 He, of course, is referring particularly to the high-performance and green power behind the Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid.
Not only does the Prius uphold a strong, positive reputation, but the Toyota name as well. All new Toyota vehicles proudly display brand standards and are available for you to test drive at Lustine Toyota, 14227 Jefferson Davis Hwy Woodbridge, VA 22191.
