South Africans have been reluctant to buy hybrid vehicles. One of the reasons is because Government hasn’t provided cash incentives but, despite this, Toyota is trying to get local motorists to warm up to more responsible performance with its Yaris HSD.
Thanks to Toyota’s alternative powertrain efforts in the past decade, and the environmentally conscious state of California, the world has woken to the hybrid front with almost every mass-producing manufacturer having developed or developing a system that not only prevents the wastage of energy but dramatically reduces fuel consumption and the emission of harmful gasses into the atmosphere. Toyota is undoubtedly still at the head of the green charge.
