As part of its ongoing commitment to protect the environment and build sustainable vehicles around the greater Tracy area and beyond, Toyota Financial Services has issued its fifth Green Bond in support of vehicles that meet clean air standards. Read on to learn more about what Toyota plans to do this year to stay sustainable.

Toyota Financial Service's Green Bond Program

A Green Bond is a financial instrument designated for use in environmentally responsible activities. Toyota Financial Services sells Green Bonds into the financial markets. It then uses the funding proceeds to support its efforts to design, build, and distribute vehicles that meet three sustainability criteria.

  • They offer a hybrid or alternative fuel option for their powertrains.
  • They are rated at 40 miles per gallon, on the highway in the city.
  • They achieve an EPA Smog Rating of 7 or better, where 10 is the cleanest available rating.

Sustainable Toyota Models

Six Toyota vehicles available at our dealership near Turlock currently meet clean air requirements for fuel efficiency, powertrain, and emissions. They include:

  • Toyota Avalon Hybrid
  • Toyota Camry Hybrid
  • Toyota Corolla Hybrid
  • Toyota Mirai
  • Toyota Prius
  • Toyota Prius Prime
