The all new 2021 Toyota Highlander hybrid. Big SUV energy. Small car energy footprint.

2021 toyota highlander hybrid02

As we all look to the future it has become clear that our motoring needs are changing. You can make changes NOW that will have great impact on your energy footprint whilst not altering your day to day experience.

The all new ranges coming from Toyota are giving us all new options.
The new 2021 Toyota Highlander Hybrid for instance means no compromises for the busy family. It is still a 7 seater, still AWD, and it can still tow up to 2000kg braked, but only has the fuel consumption of 5.6L/100km, and an EV mode.

Drive Away from $63,990
Finance Weekly from $287.66

Toyota disappointed in misinformation around electric utes

2021 hilux12 hero range

Toyota New Zealand has confirmed today that it has no plans to bring in an electric Hilux in the next 18 – 24 months.

“I’d like to reiterate that we do not have any plans for a battery electric Hilux in our line-up in the next 18 – 24 months,” says Neeraj Lala, Toyota New Zealand Chief Executive Officer.

“It is irresponsible to suggest that customers stop buying non-electric vehicles immediately until there is an electric option available. The range and volumes of EV’s needed to meet demand is simply not available, and many customers still need a vehicle to transport their family or operate their business.”

There have been 5,296 EV sales over the last five years, and of these 45% fall into the luxury market. In comparison, there have been 23,257 hybrid sales over the same period.

“Our extensive hybrid range has allowed us to contribute to 43% of the overall reduction of CO2 emissions over the past five years in New Zealand,” says Mr Lala. “Hybrid technology is more readily available and is significantly more affordable for everyday kiwis. Battery electric technology is coming but is not quite there yet.”

“As a brand we are focused on achieving affordability of low emission technology for everyday kiwis, not just the top 2%.”
