For some, the end of 2012 bring upon us, well..the end. For Toyota, the end of 2012 marks the beginning of their conquest to build the largest fleet of hybrid vehicles. With six new hybrids coming, Toyota has stated that hybrids are here to stay and their benefit to us will be great. All of the hybrids will be totally new models.
Of the new hybrids, two will display the L for luxury emblem of Lexus and the other four will be Toyotas. Toyota’s spokesperson said the competition is heating up for green transports, especially since vehicles like Nissan’s Leaf and GM’s Volt are gathering a lot of attention since the introduction of the environmentally friendly electric vehicles. Toyota thinks that offering options in the market will capture the audience better than one single vehicle.
Like the Prius, some of the models will be hybrid-only while others will have the gasoline counterpart. Expect a fully electric version of the Toyota RAV4 SUV, which was developed with their new partner Tesla, to debut this November at the LA auto show.
