Unknown or lesser known to most of us, Toyota is also a pioneer in hybrid vehicles. While we fret at every increase in petrol price hike and cheer at onc- in-a-blue-moon drop of fuel prices, folks at Toyota have been working to reduce dependency on fossil fuel as much as possible.  Toyota Prius, a petrol+electric hybrid has won many appreciations worldwide. Camry Hybrid is also on sale in India.
Toyota was first to mass produce hybrid cars and make them practical and accessible to everyone.
