Toyota Continues To Innovate With Green Technology

At Toyota Bountiful, we're always looking for new and innovate ways to serve our customers. That same spirit of innovation has helped Toyota become a leader in fuel-efficient technology. As part of Toyota's effort to build the latest, most advanced cars, Toyota North America recently announced a new initiative with The Electrochemical Society (ECS) which granted three researchers a fellowship to work on projects in green energy technology. A world-class honor, the program is sure to build on Toyota's legacy of fuel-efficient vehicles, such as the flagship 2015 Toyota Prius.

Here's what Paul Fanson, Fellowship chair and manager of Toyota's North American Research Strategy Office had to say about the program: "We view research as an investment in our future both for our business, but also for the greater society. In order to start to overcome the very difficult technical challenges that we face, it is necessary to invest in and encourage scientists from diverse backgrounds with creative ideas that are willing to think outside of the box."

Though new innovations are always on the horizon, drivers can already take advantage of the great green technology in the Toyota Prius.

For 2015, the vehicle offers up to 51 MPG highway, thanks to its special Hybrid Synergy Drive system, as well as an array of fantastic in-vehicle features. An aircraft-inspired head-up display keeps drivers focused on the road while projecting key vehicle metrics on the front windshield, and the vehicle's Smart Key System allows drivers to unlock and enter the vehicle wirelessly without having to fumble with traditional keys.

Finally, the 2015 Toyota Prius offers an in-dash monitor that allows drivers to track fuel usage down to the mile and gauge efficiency over time using the hybrid's ECO Savings Record.
