Toyota Prius hybrid sedan: Information for Pittsburgh and Greensburg, PA customers
The Toyota Prius was ranked as the most fuel-efficient car available in America by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This award is testament to Toyota’s innovative, fuel-saving design and engineering.
Unlike traditional cars and trucks with just one power source, the gasoline engine, the Toyota Prius is powered by two sources: a gasoline engine and an electric motor. It is considered to be a “combined hybrid” because of this characteristic.
The braking system of the Toyota Prius is responsible for its energy-saving qualities. The system is known as 'regenerative braking,' meaning that the energy resulting from the work done by braking is transferred to the car's nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) battery as electrical energy, enabling it to recharge.
Greensburg Toyota is proud to carry the Prius, an innovative car model that recharges its own battery system with electrical energy generated by the car itself. By determining the correct balance of power between gasoline and motor power, the car provides a fuel efficient driving scheme.
When a Toyota Prius driver accelerates from a full stop, the motion is powered by the battery only. Other modes of driving are powered by the correct balance between electrical power and gasoline power. This cuts down on gasoline waste from vehicle idling, as well as reduces the amount of exhaust gas in the air. Drivers will see a miles-per-gallon fuel efficiency approaching almost twice that of a traditional, gasoline-powered car or truck.
While driving around Pittsburgh or Greensburg, PA, you might have noticed the gas prices at your favorite local gasoline retailer. Quite high, aren't they? The Toyota Prius model is one option for saving you money on gasoline.
Other Toyota hybrid models
Toyota Greensburg sells the Toyota Camry hybrid sedan, which operates on a 4-cylinder engine and battery power. This Toyota retailer, just minutes from Pittsburgh, PA also sells the Toyota Highlander, a hybrid SUV Toyota model with miles-per-gallon fuel efficiency that is superior to non-hybrid SUVs of similar weight classes. Both cars help reduce CO2 emissions in the environment.
Why go hybrid in Greensburg and Pittsburgh? Why, go Toyota!
Toyota hybrid models are a response to research-based evidence suggesting that there exists an ever-growing buildup of carbon dioxide (CO2) gases in the atmosphere. These gases are also known as 'greenhouse gases,' and they are thought to be responsible for climate change and increasing global temperatures. CO2 is emitted by car, truck, and SUV engines as they burn fuel to enable motion. Vehicles emit other gases classified as greenhouse gases – methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (NO) – as well, so the act of burning gasoline is thought to be a contributor to global warming.
Hybrid vehicles, such as the Toyota Prius, and the Camry and Highlander hybrid models, are a positive step towards reducing annual United States greenhouse gas emissions. By making fuel consumption more efficient, these Toyota models are enabling Pittsburgh, Greensburg, and other Western Pennsylvania customers to help save the Earth while saving money at the gasoline pump.
