Toyota Camry Sales Approach 50,000 Units: 1 per Minute

2014 Toyota Camry
In May, Toyota sold almost 50,000 Camrys, equaling one every 52 seconds.

Toyota Camry Sales approached 50,000 units last month (49,584 exactly), with sales up 26 percent and topping its segment by over 10,000 units.

Think about that for a second: fifty thousand cars in a single month. That means Americans, on average, drove away with a Camry every 52 seconds of every hour of every day of May.

One might wonder what makes the Camry so popular, except that most people already do—after all, it’s not been the best-selling car for 15 of the last 16 years for no reason.

Recently, the Camry’s quality has once again been reaffirmed by top honors in the J.D. Power IQS and VDS studies as well as its five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It was also named “Best Midsize Car for the Money” list by U.S. News and World Report and “Most Popular” by Edmunds.com.

“It’s America’s best-selling car, but more important is the one Camry in the customer’s driveway,” said Bob Carter, vice president of automotive operations, Toyota Motor Sales. “The one Camry that gets you and your family to work, school, vacation, the Camry that works in a business enterprise, the one Camry you trust to be reliable and help keep your family safe.”

The 2015 Camry arrives at Haddad Toyota later this year, so stop by now to test drive a 2014 or come by in a few months to get behind the wheel of a 2015 version !

Toyota Fuel Efficiency in An Unexpected Place

2014 Toyota Prius Hybrid
When most people think about Toyota Fuel efficiency, they only think about the Toyota Prius or toher Toyota Hybrids. But, Toyota has some great fuel efficient options in some surprising places.

When discussions of Toyota fuel efficiency come up, everyone’s minds immediately jump to hybrid technology. People love to talk about the great the fuel economy of the Toyota Prius, Camry Hybrid, Sonata Hybrid, or really, any Toyota hybrid. While the 2014 Toyota Camry Hybrid ranks first on U.S. News & World Report’s ranking of the best hybrid cars, and the 2014 Toyota Prius ranks fourth and are certainly great fuel efficient options, they are not Toyota’s only fuel efficient options. Many people often skim over Toyota’s non-car models when looking for a fuel efficient vehicle and this is often a mistake.

Recently the two-wheel drive 2014 Toyota Tacoma was given the title of the most fuel efficient small pickup truck by Design News. This Toyota pickup gets an EPA estimated 25 MPG Highway and 21 MPG city. Of course, you can find Toyota fuel-efficiency in an SUV as well. The 2014 Toyota Highlander Hybrid was named the most fuel efficient in the standard SUV category,  getting an EPA estimated 28 MPG Highway and 27 MPG City.

No matter what size vehicle you need, Toyota has a fuel efficient option for you. Be sure to stop by Haddad Toyota to check out these great cars and see which one fits with your lifestyle.

Powering Remote Locations: Toyota Hybrid Battery Packs

Toyota Hybrid Battery Pack
While this Toyota Hybrid Battery Pack is in a car, ready to power it down the road, Toyota has found uses for their battery packs beyond the norm.

Do you remember earlier this year when a man in Ontario lost power due to a snow storm and he decided to power his home using his Toyota Prius? If you missed this story in the midst of all the snow storms coming our way this past winter, well, we can’t blame you. But, someone certainly noticed this story and saw that Toyota hybrid batteries have a lot of power, even when they aren’t brand new! Toyota decided to use their battery power to help others and recently donated 208 used Camry hybrid nickel-metal battery packs to Yellowstone National Park. These Toyota hybrid battery packs will be used to power the Buffalo Ranch Field Campus.

The batteries will be able to provide power to the Buffalo Ranch Field Campus’s five buildings for more than a year, holding up to 85 kilowatts of energy. Toyota believes that this might just be the first of many uses for these hybrid battery packs. These batteries could help power buildings in remote locations across the globe. This would help to double the lifespan of Toyota’s hybrid batteries, helping Toyota’s hybrids to be green in more ways than one.

This high-tech power system is set to be installed this coming fall. To see just what the Toyota hybrid battery packs can do before it’s too old to properly power a car, check out the Toyota Prius, Toyota Camry Hybrid, Avalon Hybrid, Highlander Hybrid, and RAV4 EV at Haddad Toyota!
