Toyota has been rated the world’s greenest carmaker and among the environmental leaders of the largest publicly traded companies, according to a global environmental performance assessment commissioned by Newsweek magazine. The “Best in Industry Global” award in the automobiles category of the Newsweek Green Rankings recognises Toyota’s track record of environmental sustainability, and its eco-sensitive hybrid and fuel-cell vehicles.
Toyota was ranked 16th among the world’s 500 largest publicly traded companies – the Global 500 – ahead of respected organisations such as Apple, Starbucks and Nike.
An improved green score for Toyota this year reflects the company’s on-going commitment to green initiatives.
Toyota Australia senior divisional manager sales and marketing Sean Hanley said Toyota is proud to be recognised as the greenest automotive company and as a leader among global companies.
“Globally, Toyota has demonstrated its leadership in sustainable mobility through its commitment to developing and improving existing and alternative vehicle technologies that reduce the impact on the environment,” Mr Hanley said.
“In Australia, we have been offering consumers our innovative hybrid vehicles since 2001 and we have already sold more than 80,000 of these fuel-efficient vehicles including Camry, Corolla and the Prius family,” he said.
The recent launch of the 8th generation Camry is a testament to Toyota’s innovative hybrid vehicles; and features the new hybrid system which offers enhanced handling and driving performance as well as outstanding fuel efficiency – 4.5 litres/100km on the SL and 4.2 litres on the other grades, improvements of between 13.5 and more than 19 per cent^.
The Camry hybrid gains a new SPORT drive mode, along with the previous NORMAL, ECO and EV modes, delivering improved acceleration response relative to pedal input.
