ABDULLAH Abdulghani & Bros Co WLL (AAB), the exclusive distributor of Toyota and Lexus in Qatar, collaborates with Sharq Village & Spa in its bid to reduce Qatar’s carbon footprint by using hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs).
AAB and Sharq Village & Spa signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) followed by the handover of a Camry hybrid and a Lexus ES hybrid vehicle for hotel use in this regard recently. This is part of AAB’s initiative to endorse the environmental benefits of hybrid electric vehicles in the country.
The Toyota Camry Hybrid and the Lexus ES operate on both battery and gas/petrol engine and electric motor depending on the driving conditions. The electric motor reduces load on the engine during driving, thus contributing to low emissions and reducing harmful substances in exhaust gas as well as lower fuel consumption – making it an environment-friendly car.
Firas Mufti, AAB’s senior marketing manager, said, “We are delighted to collaborate with Sharq Village & Spa on this noble initiative of reducing Qatar’s carbon footprint. We share the same values of caring for the environment while at the same time endorsing the hybrid electric technology”.
Belal al Kadry, general manager at Sharq Hotel & Spa stated, “It gives us immense pleasure to partner with Abdullah Abdulghani & Bros Co WLL to collectively make what little difference we can to reduce our community’s carbon footprint in an endeavour to build a sustainable future. This symbiotic sentiment between us led to what we hope will inspire more such collaborations for businesses to be mindful of protecting the environment while making big strides.”
The new Camry HEV provides a comfortable and stable ride with superior handling characteristics, thanks to Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, which represents an entirely new strategy to the way the company designs, engineers and packages its vehicles. TNGA retains all of Toyota’s traditional values of superlative build quality and safety while injecting a fun driving experience that plays on all the senses.
The class-leading model can be driven entirely by either electrical power with zero-fuel consumption and carbon emissions, or with a combination of a petrol engine and two electric motors depending on the vehicle speed and customer’s driving behaviour. The batteries in the hybrid electric drive train are automatically charged by either the petrol engine or when braking and decelerating, eliminating the need to plug in a power cord. Furthermore, the all-new Camry HEV does not require a special fuel yet drives like any other conventional car. In addition, thanks to its top-class fuel efficiency, visits to petrol stations will be lesser.
The class-leading hybrid electric model ES 300h can be driven entirely by either electrical power with zero-fuel consumption and carbon emissions, or with a combination of a petrol engine and two electric motors, depending on the vehicle’s speed and customer’s driving behaviour. The batteries in the hybrid electric drive train are automatically charged by either the petrol engine or when braking and decelerating, eliminating the need to plug in a power cord. Furthermore, the ES 300h electrified hybrid model features a host of advanced technologies, yet drives like any other conventional car and does not require special fuel.
