Toyota “Hybrid Town” Video Highlights Benefits of Driving Hybrid
Here in the United States, it’s fairly common to see multiple hybrid vehicles on the road every time you venture out of your driveway. Over in the UK, hybrids are just as popular. To show off just how beneficial it can be to drive a hybrid, Toyota UK has created a short film depicting real-life hybrid drivers in their everyday lives. The Toyota “Hybrid Town” video definitely makes us consider switching! [ Watch the video below ]
The Toyota “Hybrid Town” video starts with John Spirit and his wife Margaret. The couple was in the market for a new car earlier this year, and was drawn to the Toyota Auris Hybrid after taking it for a test drive. As soon as they arrived back to the dealership, they bought the car and haven’t looked back. “If all cars were hybrids,” John says in the video, “it would be a lot quieter where we are now.”
A quieter ride is one of the many reasons people choose to drive hybrid vehicles. Those who are used to loud journeys can enjoy the silence that comes along with driving a hybrid. This is a theme picked up by Sarah Watson, who owns a Yaris Hybrid. Sarah loves listening to music while she drives but sometimes, she says, it’s nice to drive home in silence, especially when she’s just finished a hectic day at work. Sarah also likes how much the Yaris Hybrid saves her in gas money.
Many people who talk about hybrid vehicles talk first and foremost about the money you can save by making the switch. Sarah isn’t the only owner who considers this a major perk of driving a Toyota hybrid. Nuno Madeira is a mountaineer and explorer, and drives a Toyota Auris Hybrid. Nuno spends a great deal of time on the road driving from one adventurous location to the next. His car helps save him money, so he can spend his cash on his outdoor adventures. Nuno also likes that his Auris Hybrid is spacious enough to fit all his equipment—of which he has a lot.
The Toyota “Hybrid Town” video is well worth a watch if you’re considering switching to a hybrid vehicle. While none of the vehicles shown are available in the US, the Prius family—as well as hybrid versions of the Camry, Highlander, and Avalon—are more than capable of saving you money, keeping it quiet, and fitting all your gear. Plus, you’ll get that great feeling that comes along with knowing you’re doing your part to help save the planet for generations to come. Who could say no to that?
