Toyota Commercial Hybrid Vehicles Found in Sri Lanka
As the largest automobile manufacturer in the world, Toyota has also been the leading vehicle maker when it comes to conducting research for efficient alternative fuel saving technologies. In fact, Toyota’s involvement with such research goes decades, with the company being one of the first automobile makers to produce a fully functioning hybrid fuel vehicle, which is the Toyota Prius, as far back as 20 years ago in 1997. But Toyota’s involvement with alternative fuel technologies did not stop there, since the company has went on to create a wide range of plug-in hybrids, all-electric vehicles as well as even hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles that are being sold within specified markets around the world. As such, a number of its commercial vehicles also managed to obtain the “Hybrid” status with one of the earliest being the Toyota Coaster Hybrid EV (discontinued) as well as the later Toyota ToyoAce Hybrid. Nevertheless, due to various practical implications, these hybrid versions of commercial vehicles might be a bit difficult to find within the Sri Lankan market, though we can expect this to change in the near future.
