Toyota newest Hybrid SUV
Proving that large vehicles can also be eco-friendly, Al-Futtaim Toyota today brings a new level of efficiency and technology to the UAE’s SUV market with the launch of its biggest Hybrid-Electric Vehicle (HEV) to date. Available exclusively with an HEV powertrain, the all-new Toyota Highlander takes its place at the pinnacle of Toyota’s electrified SUV line-up.
Toyota has combined its leadership in HEV development and extensive experience in the SUV market with its legendary Quality, Durability, and Reliability (QDR) to create the all-new Toyota Highlander HEV. The innovative vehicle builds on a legacy of more than 23 years at the forefront of eco-friendly technology, 15-million satisfied HEV customers globally, and the most extensive HEV line-up in the region. After setting a goal of developing a vehicle that would provide both unrivaled family security and heightened driving pleasure in every situation, Toyota engineers turned their attention to establishing the highest standards for design and quality.
Saud Abbasi, Managing Director at Al-Futtaim Toyota said, “We are very excited to be expanding our HEV offering with the launch of the much-anticipated Highlander. This car underscores our continuous commitment to play a leading role in constantly innovating and developing technologies that protect the UAE’s environment. The all-new Highlander has been engineered to offer outstanding fuel efficiency while delivering first-class comfort, technology and performance. By continually striving to push the boundaries of our environmental technologies, our customers can experience cars such as the Highlander that are ecofriendly and fun to drive, while protecting our environment for future generations to enjoy.
Electrification of vehicles has been a strong focus for Toyota since 1997. Since then, the company has successfully launched a variety of HEVs, leading the way to steady growth in the adoption of its environment-friendly vehicles and pushing cumulative sales to over 15 million. Combined, this enormous sales record represents a reduction of more than 120 million tons of CO2 compared to the sales of equivalent conventional vehicles and underscores the tremendous support from Toyota’s customers for this eco-friendly approach.
