But what are some of the things that Mother Nature would do to save the planet? Let’s say she’s a city girl who’s constantly braving traffic—it’s important for her is to find an electric vehicle that will get her to her destination efficiently. A good choice would be a Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV). Here are three reasons why:
Less carbon emissions
Electrified cars can reduce the effects of climate change as theylimit warming to below 2°C or 1.5°C. Another advantage of using HEVs is that they have reduced pollutants which can cause health problems. Mother Nature wouldn’t want to own something that harms both the environment and the people around her.
Toyota’s goal is to eliminate carbon emissions in the next three decades via theToyota Environmental Challenge 2050 campaign. HEVs are a great start, especially in the Philippines which hasheavy traffic along major highways almost every day.
Lasts a long time
Cars are an investment—if you take good care of them, they will last you a long time. Mother Nature would want something that she can pass down to her family members. She definitely reminds us of our own mothers who give out hand-me-downs that can still be used for years to come. HEVs also have a five-year warranty for their batteries and they are designed to last the life of the car.
If you want to know more about Toyota’s HEVs, you can check theirwebsite andFacebook page for updates on their upcoming projects. You can also check out their new HEVshere.
You can also check them out at Toyota’s Hybrid Electric Vehicle Expo happening today until Dec. 16 in SM Mall of Asia, and Dec. 18 to 22 at Bonifacio High Street. You’ll get the chance to test them out as well. Who knows? You might just find the right fit for you.
