In a natural evolution of marketing its hybrid vehicles, Toyota Canada has expanded its Certified Used Vehicle program to include hybrid models.
Toyota has sold more than 69,000 Toyota Hybrid Vehicles since the first Prius arrived in Canada in 2000.
“The Toyota Certified Used Hybrid Vehicle program is the first of its kind in Canada, and is a testament to Toyota’s industry-leading experience in building, selling and servicing Canada’s best selection of fuel-efficient, low-emissions, advanced technology vehicles,” said Tony Wearing, senior managing director, Toyota Canada Inc. “Hybrids are as reliable, and as easy to own and drive, as conventional vehicles – so it’s natural to build on our program for certified pre-owned vehicles with this new initiative tailored to those built around Toyota’s proven hybrid technology. Add in the ability to view Toyota Dealer hybrid inventories online plus special financing rates, and it’s never been easier to shop for the right hybrid vehicle.”
According to the company, Toyota’s certified used vehicle programs are designed to help Canadian drivers enjoy unrivaled piece of mind, years of ownership satisfaction, and enhanced resale values.
Every Toyota Certified Used Vehicle includes a CarProof Vehicle History Report, is subject to a 127-point inspection plus extensive mechanical and appearance reconditioning. Certified vehicles also include a seven day/1,500 km exchange privilege, a free oil/filter change, membership in Club Toyota, and a minimum of 12 months/20,000 km powertrain and roadside assistance coverage.
Toyota certified used hybrid vehicles undergo a special 134-point inspection plan that includes all hybrid components.
