The energy efficiency & Conservation Authority (EECA) note that hybrid vehicles have good fuel economy ratings to comparable petrol and diesel vehicles. As a consequence, they have lower fuel emissions making them a better choice for the environment.

“Hybrid vehicles are significantly cheaper to run, with models like the Prius using just 3.4L to 100km, making hybrids the perfect choice for the city dwellers everyday commutes in Auckland’s heavy traffic” Says Tom Barrow General Manger for Auckland City Toyota Greenlane.

Auckland City Toyota’s Greenlane staff have received extensive training surrounding hybrid vehicles that will allow them to find a hybrid that best suits the client’s needs and expectations.

2016 data released from the ministry of transport shows an increase in the number of used hybrid vehicle registrations across New Zealand and with the recent addition of the corolla hybrid, Auckland City Toyota expect sales of new hybrids to also increase.
