A few years ago, one of Sun Toyota’s managers, proposed to build a certified green facility that would save energy and protect the Earth. Not only is our Holiday car dealership LEED Certified, but we also carry an inventory of new Hybrid Toyota vehicles in the Tampa, Clearwater, and surrounding Florida areas!
Test drive the new Camry Hybrid, or Corolla Hybrid in Holiday. Toyota knows that building a green dealership was the right thing to do for the environment and for the surrounding Florida communities.
Hybrid vehicles use both a gasoline engine and an electric motor to power the vehicle, which can significantly reduce emissions of pollutants like carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides.
Hybrid vehicles can get better gas mileage than traditional gas-only vehicles, which can lead to less fuel consumption and fewer emissions overall. In addition, it allows drivers to save money that would normally be spent on filling up their tanks!
Hybrid vehicles can run on electricity, which is a cleaner and renewable energy source as compared to fossil fuels, this can reduce the dependence on fossil fuels and decrease the greenhouse gases emissions.
Air pollution can have negative effects on human health and the environment, by reducing emissions, hybrid vehicles can help to improve air quality.
Electric motors in hybrid vehicles are much quieter than traditional gasoline engines, this can reduce noise pollution, particularly in close communities such as our own near Tampa, Clearwater, and Port Richey!
The sentiment to protect the environment is spreading throughout Holiday, FL. Students at the nearby Gulf Trace Elementary benefit through their proximity to Sun Toyota. Plus, the school is able to use a hands-on approach to teach children about maintaining their own health and the health of the environment.
Sun Toyota also participates in other areas of service within the community, donating green vehicles like the Toyota Prius to organizations like Hope Children’s Home of Tampa.
Sun Toyota took more than 100 steps to update the design, construction, and operations for approval as a green site. When you visit Sun Toyota, you’ll see modifications like:
At Sun Toyota, we’re committed to protecting the environment for years to come. And we consider our dealership to be our home.
