As Toyota continues to push the development of environmentally friendly mobility, the brand remains at the top of the industry with award wins for their economical vehicles.
With both the Prius and the Mirai, Toyota has been commended for their development in the sector, and the brand has won three awards to show how important their work in sustainable driving is. The Prius has won Carbuyer's 'Best Economical Car', taking into account the model's superb fuel economy and low emissions.
Carbuyer editor Stuart Milne said:
Few cars offer better mpg figures than the Toyota Prius, which is capable of a remarkable 94.2mpg in ideal conditions. Out in the real world, figures of 70 to 80mpg should be easy to achieve, numbers that were unthinkable just a few short years ago.
Away from those figures, there's still much to praise the Prius for: it's comfortable, well priced and, if you choose a model with 15-inch wheels, it's exempt from the London Congestion Charge.
The Prius also won the Women's World Car of the Year's 'Green Car of the Year', after a panel of some of the world’s best female motoring journalists found it to be the most important 'green' car on the market today.
In another accolade for the brand, GreenFleet has named Toyota its 'Car Manufacturer of the Year', winning the most competitive award in the selection. GreenFleet events manager Colin Boynton said:
"Toyota have come back with a bang and thrust themselves into the forefront of fleet managers' thinking when it comes to fuel efficiency on a mass scale. With hybrid derivatives across their range and a hydrogen offering now, too, they are worthy winners of the award."
With many hybrid options throughout the range, the Toyota range has become one of the most appealing on the market, and to find out more about the award-winning range, contact your nearest Inchcape Toyota Centre.
