The campaign will include hybrid clinics at Toyota dealerships across the country, and displays at state fairs, science museums and other locations designed to reach a wider cross-section of car buyers.
Toyota is set to launch a huge campaign to expand mainstream North American
demand for its Prius hybrid petrol-electric car.
Although the Prius is already the top-selling hybrid vehicle, demand has so
far been concentrated in environmentally conscious communities, such as big
cities on the east and west coasts, and university areas.
"Prius will be one of our top five products at the volume level", Jim Farley,
head of marketing at the carmaker's US subsidiary, said in an interview with the
Financial Times on Sunday.
Reflex features an advanced diesel-electric hybrid propulsion system that harnesses diesel, electric and solar power. This combination of power can deliver maximum fuel economy - up to 65 mpg - without compromising performance.
The Concept-CT is revealed to the world by Mitsubishi Motors North America on Monday, Jan. 9, 2006 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The Concept-CT utilizes the Mitsubishi In-wheel Electric Vehicle (MIEV) hybrid powertrain, which employs an electric motor in each of the vehicle's four wheels. The ultra-compact four-door hatchback maximizes interior space and combines practicality, fun-to-drive performance and low fuel consumption.
