I was already a fan before, but a day spent learning more about Toyota’s family of hybrid Prius cars and I feel like I’m cheating on my own car. I was treated to breakfast and an interesting talk about how hybrids work, the range of cars, and the future of Toyota hybrids before the real fun began.
You can learn all about hybrid technology on Toyota’s website.
Toyota’s Hybrid family:
With 5 checkpoints at places around Vancouver, other participants and I took out cars to go on a rally to try to stay in the ‘electric’ range while driving the hybrids we took out.
A few of my favourite Toyota Prius tidbits:
- they are 85% recyclable
- 98% of battery components are recyclable
- there are recycled parts throughout the car
