The annual Best Global Green Brands report was released and Toyota has once again been named the world’s greenest brand!
Toyota has earned recognition for its focus on sustainability and reducing fuel consumption. For several years now, Toyota has been leading the way with vehicles such as the Prius hybrid and now the all-electric RAV4 EV.
The Prius hybrid has a fuel economy of 51 city and 48 highway mpg. The Hybrid Synergy Drive® system combines the benefits of an efficient gasoline engine and a clean, quiet electric motor. It can be powered by the engine, the electric motor or a combination of both, automatically choosing the most efficient mode for the best mpg.
The RAV4 EV, an all-electric SUV, uses zero gas and is certified as a Zero Emission vehicle. This means it doesn’t emit any tailpipe pollution. Beyond the eco-efficiency of the car, Toyota is also making a drive for zero waste in its manufacturing plants. All of these efforts add up to recognize Toyota as the world’s best global green brand.

Toyota has transformed the compact sedan Corolla with impressive new styling and flashy features.
Toyota listened to its consumers when it came to the Corolla redesign and aims to attract younger buyers who put a high priority on style, efficiency and function.
The new 2014 Corolla will go on sale this fall is a bigger model than the previous versions. It is four inches longer and the front and rear wheels have been stretched apart, giving the car a more aggressive stance. The corners of the design have also been tapered, giving the Corolla a leaner look than ever before. The redesign makes the Corolla more aerodynamic to improve fuel efficiency. On the Eco model, more aerodynamic enhancements have been made, including a small spoiler on the rear edge of the trunk and special wheels. The 2014 Corolla LE Eco is expected to achieve 40 miles per gallon or more on the highway.
There are many new features as part of the 2014 Corolla. LED headlights, which are normally found on luxury cars, are used for low beams in headlights, a first for a compact car in the Corolla segment. Also unique is the continuously variable new transmission: lighter, smaller and more efficient than a conventional automatic transmission. With both Eco and Sport modes, the Toyota transmission will always feel like it’s shifting gears with seven fixed ratios.
The interior has also been revamped on the new 2014 Corolla with a new sporty look that feels more premium in its materials. Rear-seat comfort is improved with expanded legroom, thicker seat cushions and sound insulation throughout the cabin.
“Standard” is no longer boring with the new 2014 Toyota Corolla. Expect official pricing and full specs to be announced closer to the car’s on-sale date this fall!
