Back-to-back ecoENERGY Awards for Toyota Prius v and Toyota Tacoma

Thirteenth consecutive year for a Prius vehicle winning an EcoENERGY Award Tacoma is Canada’s most fuel-efficient pickup for third straight year

TORONTO, ON., (February 14, 2013) – The Toyota Prius v, which has been on the market for less than two years, had its status confirmed as the country’s most fuel-efficient wagon, winning a second consecutive ecoENERGY Award. It marks the 13th year in a row that a vehicle from the Prius family has received an ecoENERGY Award.

In addition, Toyota’s versatile Tacoma pickup truck continues to be the most fuel-efficient vehicle in its class after winning a third consecutive ecoENERGY Award from Natural Resources Canada’s Office of Energy Efficiency.

“From the time the first Prius went on sale about 15 years ago, it has been synonymous with automotive environmental leadership,” said Stephen Beatty, Managing Director and Chief Environmental Officer at Toyota Canada Inc. “Over the years, the Prius brand has grown into a broad family of offerings, each fulfilling a unique niche in meeting the different lifestyle needs of Canadians but all deliver the exceptional fuel efficiency associated with our proven hybrid powertrain.”

While boasting advanced acceleration, braking and ride comfort, the Prius v still maintains remarkable fuel efficiency, claiming an ecoENERGY Award at 4.5L/100 km city/highway combined. In addition, tailpipe emissions are a fraction of those from a conventional crossover.
