By now, we’re sure you’ve heard of all the new electric Toyota options that are steadily joining the ranks of Toyota’s eco-friendly vehicles. The Toyota Prius Plug-in has been around for a few years, and the all-electric new Toyota RAV4 EV recently joined the family. Unfortunately, we don’t offer either of these at our Orlando family of dealerships yet – they’re pretty hard to find, actually, especially on the East Coast. The Toyota Prius Plug-in isn’t even for sale in Florida unless you request it specially. While running rampant in California, new Toyota vehicles that are electric just aren’t as numerous in Central Florida! However, plans have been set in motion to help promote the electric car movement in our city – around 150 charging stations have been installed city-wide, and as of late last year around 700 electric vehicles were registered to local drivers.
Why choose an electric Toyota in Orlando?
What are the benefits of these all-electric new Toyota in Orlando? Well, first of all, eco-sensitivity. These electric vehicles cut down severely on smog-forming emissions, even more so than Orlando Toyota hybrids do. Additionally, they help to save you a ton of money on fuel. While some of them like the Toyota Prius Plug-in do have hybrid technology under the hood as a backup, you can still charge them like you would your cell phone – plugged into an outlet in your garage. Each all-electric new Toyota comes with a special charging cable, and while charging times vary you can generally be fully charged and out on the road in just a few hours!
Let’s explore one of the electric new Toyota that’s available to you if you want to go especially green!
2013 Toyota Prius Plug-in offers extremely green performance
The 2013 Toyota Prius Plug-in is a pretty cool car – like we said, it’s a mix of an electric vehicle (for slower speeds and shorter distances) and hybrid technology (for greater driving distances and higher speeds). We can’t wait to be able to offer it to our Orlando Toyota customers. It boasts highlights like:
- Not only are you doing your part for Mother Earth, if you buy a new Toyota Prius Plug-in and meet eligibility, you’re up for a Federal Grant of up to $2,500 for your go-green tendencies.
- This new Toyota has excellent technology available, such as a display audio system with navigation and Entune, a remote climate control system, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Bluetooth wireless streaming, and the Smart Key System.
- The Toyota Prius Plug-in offers Orlando Toyota drivers 95 mpge, which is the electricity equivalent for gasoline mpg. It also gets 50 mpg combined if you swap over to hybrid capabilities.
- You’ll also find a comfortable interior trimmed in SofTex that easily seats five, while the hatchback design allows for almost 22 cubic feet of cargo space.
However, that’s not the only all-electric Toyota option available to you.
