Celebrate a decade of energy excellence with your California Toyota dealership

Posted Wednesday, May 07, 2014 by nhtwpprod

Residents of California know the importance of energy, and
the impact energy use has on the environment. Many of the state’s residents
also know that when they
purchase or lease a Prius in Los Angeles
, they are getting the same great
car that was introduced as a four-door hybrid in the United States over a
decade ago. Always striving to bring energy efficiency and eco-friendly choices
to the country’s drivers, Toyota is proud of their having received the 10th
consecutive U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ENERGY STAR Partner of the
Year Award.


Getting down to the numbers

It probably comes as no surprise to most Los Angeles Toyota
drivers that this is the largest number of awards accepted by any automaker.
What you might fail to realize, however, is the significance of what the car
dealer has accomplished in order to earn this recognition. Toyota’s 14 North
American manufacturing plants have saved enough energy during the last ten
years to power an entire city for a whole year. That amount of saved energy is
equivalent to almost 11 billion kilowatt hours, or enough to power about
400,000 average households for one year.


Additionally, during the past decade, total energy has been
reduced by 22% per vehicle produced, while the CO2 emissions have been reduced by 19% per
vehicle produced. In dollar values, the savings translate into almost $500
million dollars!


Looking ahead

As impressive as the numbers are, Toyota never stops
striving to make them better. Receiving their 10th award from the
U.S. EPA for continued leadership in protecting the environment by superior
energy efficiency is an accomplishment to be proud of. In fact, Toyota has been
recognized by several agencies for their dedication to reducing energy use. Not
only does Toyota make cars that save energy, but they also look for ways to
save energy during their production processes.
