Hybrid Camry made in Coal Central

An inconvenient truth for Toyota is that any benefits in reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions from the locally built Hybrid Camry is probably offset by manufacturing the car in Victoria, which is fueled by dirty brown coal power plants.

If they are to live up to their green credentials, they should threaten future investment, unless the Victorian government wises up with regards to brown coal power plants. Otherwise, this could be another local example of "Greenwashing".

For consumers, let Toyota know your feelings towards coal power. Let's make a "real" difference. Oh what a feeling! Clean air!
