In alignment with Uganda's commitment to environmental consciousness, CFAO Motors proudly introduces the Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid Electric—a compelling choice for environmentally conscious consumers. This vehicle emits fewer greenhouse gases than traditional cars, contributing to reduced air pollution and a smaller carbon footprint.
Thomas Pelletier, the Managing Director of CFAO Motors in Uganda, shared his enthusiasm, remarking, "This represents a notable milestone in our commitment to delivering innovative and sustainable solutions. It’s our pleasure to actively support Uganda's initiatives for carbon neutrality. As part of the CFAO Group's overarching strategy, we are dedicated to expediting the development of new mobility solutions in Africa. Expect the rollout of additional innovative solutions across our current brands, as well as the introduction of new ones, as we work towards positioning Uganda at global standards."
Edwin Muhumuza, Country Sales Manager at CFAO Motors in Uganda, emphasized the strategic importance of the Corolla Cross HEV in the market. "It's not just a new vehicle; it's a commitment to a sustainable driving experience. As Uganda focuses more on Hybrid Electric technology, we offer an excellent choice with advanced technology and eco-friendly features."
Highlighting the seamless integration of Toyota's Hybrid Electric System (THS) technology, he explained, "The THS ensures a harmonious blend of fuel efficiency and performance, with the engine charging the battery via the generator. In certain conditions, such as slow-moving traffic, the petrol engine can cut off, letting the electric motor take over for zero-emissions traveling."
With the Uganda government's eco-friendly incentives of 0% import duty tax on Hybrid Electric vehicles, the brand new, zero-mileage Corolla Cross HEV is priced attractively at USD 39,500 (Shs151M), offering a compelling option for consumers. This includes 2-year free service and a 3-year manufacturer's warranty to provide the customer peace of mind. The warranty can only be offered by CFAO Motors, the exclusive manufacturer authorized distributor for Toyota vehicles and genuine spare parts in Uganda.
