Hi, I'm Kyle with Toyota of Tampa Bay, and I'd like to talk to you about how much hybrid cars cost. Hybrid vehicles from the Toyota line uprange anywhere from your low 20s around the 23 to 24,000 price point on the low end, anywhere up into the upper 40s -- the 47 to 48,000 dollar price range. Now, it really depends on what you're looking at and how much you're getting for the money. A Prius, for example, on the low end, you're still getting a lot of great safety features such as side curtain airbags, antilock brakes, five-star safety rating. Now, you compare that to a traditional Camry where it's a gas-only vehicle, and it's about the same price point as LE vehicle with comparable equipment. The Camry is a tremendous value. If you look at a Camry hybrid versus a gas-only model. Equipment-wise, you're more comparable to the top end on the Camry, which is our XLE model. The price point on the hybrid vehicle is right in-between the four cylinder and the six cylinder, which makes sense because with the Camry, you're getting added performance, which is closer to the V6 than it is the four cylinder, but you're getting gas mileage that's actually a little bit better than the four cylinder and closer to what we'd find in a Corolla. The Highlander hybrid, however, is one of those that wasn't really designed for fuel economy -- it was designed for power and performance. Now, you look at the zero to 60 times, it's much closer to a Porsche Cayenne S, for example. You're getting added traction control, added stability control systems and our vehicle dynamics in a greater management. If you look at gas savings alone and not the extra maintenance, it would take a 15,000 mile a year drive or roughly around six to seven years to make up the price difference versus something like a Camry hybrid, it might only take you about 15,000 miles in general. I'm Kyle Sperry with Toyota of Tampa Bay, and that's how much hybrid cars cost.
