Who are Toyota?
Toyota is the biggest company in Japan and the second-biggest car manufacturer in the world. It makes everything from cars to pleasure boats to robots, but is also the market leader when it comes to hybrid cars. And the best known of these is, of course, the Toyota Prius.
Being a hybrid car, the Prius can run on petrol, electricity or both. The US Environmental Protection Agency reckons it’s one of the cleanest cars in the USA, which makes it a great choice for anyone concerned about air pollution and smog.
What’s more, being a hybrid, you don’t need to find a socket to charge it. The petrol engine charges the battery – even when you brake or coast.
