At Toyota Chula Vista, we think the Toyota brand is up to some great work in the community and the world at large, and we’re proud to support Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America, Inc. (TEMA), as its efforts toward improving sustainability advance across all facets of the brand. That’s why we’re proud to share the news that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized TEMA for the ninth consecutive year with the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award. TEMA has earned the award for its distinguished leadership in protecting the environment through exploring superior energy efficiency practices.

On top of recognizing the consistency of the brand’s dedication to sustainability, the award is particularly special as Toyota has claimed the Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award more often than any other automaker assembling vehicles in the United States. The award also applies to all of the brand’s 13 North American engine, parts and vehicle manufacturing facilities, which have combined to save more than $370 million and reduce energy use by 15 percent per unit. That’s enough energy to fuel 27,000 average households for a total of 10 years!

Our Toyota dealership always stands behind our models, but with the brand’s ninth ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award now announced, we are even more excited to help connect Camry Hybrid models with National City drivers who are looking for more performance using less energy. The great news for you is that we have this model and many others ready for you to test drive and take home now! Come visit us and learn how you can join Toyota in doing more to save more energy. We can’t wait to get you started.
