Hybrid Vehicles: Toyota Prius
TOYOTA PRIUS - The Toyota Prius is probably the most widely used hybrid vehicle in the taxi industry today. First introduced in Japan in 1997 then subsequently introduced worldwide in 2001, the Prius' mid-size and dependability have made it a favorite both with well established cab companies and with newer Green Cab Companies who have made reduction of their carbon footprint a priority of their business model. The following videos are both produced by Toyota. The first is a commercial featuring a Green Tomato Cars, London's largest environmentally friendly taxi company. He shares his company's experience with the Prius in light of recent recalls.
