Next-generation all-new Toyota Prius and new model Lexus HS250h make their Canadian debut at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto
(Toronto) – More than ever before, Canadian drivers are looking for new, innovative vehicles that deliver real and lasting benefits to themselves, their families, their neighbours and their communities. At the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto, Toyota Canada Inc. today unveiled two new hybrid gasoline-electric models that deliver the vehicle of the future to the present:
The 2010 Toyota Prius is completely updated for this model year and continues to be an icon for practical sustainable mobility:
“Many companies have been talking about their plans to deliver the car of the future, and Canadians will see many promising future technologies at the Canadian International Auto Show this week. With the new Prius, however, we are telling Canadians they can have the car of the future right now. Not five years from now, but this spring, when it goes on sale across Canada,” noted Stephen Beatty, Managing Director of Toyota Canada Inc.
The 2010 Lexus HS250h is the world’s first dedicated luxury hybrid gasoline-electric vehicle, and further expands the world’s only luxury hybrid lineup with an entry level luxury hybrid sedan that gives Canadian drivers a new, no compromise standard for advanced luxury motoring:
“Six in ten people shopping for an entry luxury model have told Lexus that they would like a hybrid option. Only Lexus can offer this kind of advanced technology experience in a no-compromise luxury vehicle,” Mr. Beatty explained. “With the new HS250h, we are further cementing the Lexus commitment to advanced motoring that is intuitive, powerful, safer, and – it should be noted – environmentally sophisticated.”
“Canadians understand that as a society we need to redefine personal transportation or it will have no future. This means offering solutions that are friendlier to drivers and passengers, friendlier to pedestrians and other vehicles, and friendlier to our communities and the planet,” Mr. Beatty concluded. “With these two hybrid gasoline-electric vehicles, we are offering innovation, advanced technology and environmental sophistication on four wheels, and doing it in a way that is meaningful to both Toyota and Lexus drivers.”
