In honor of earth day today, we thought we would take a look at some of the environmentally friendly models that we carry here at Morrie’s. If you’re looking for a hybrid or electric vehicle option, we’ve got something for you.

1. Mazda doesn’t currently offer any electric or hybrid vehicles but what they do offer is their SKYACTIV system which is central to their long term effort to improve fuel-efficiency as well as reduce emissions. Mazda created SKYACTIV technology by utilizing methods such as idle-stop, regenerative braking systems as well as hybrid technology to further increase fuel efficiency. The 2012 Mazda3 was the first vehicle in the Mazda lineup to receive the new SKYACTIV technologies, which is now available on a variety of different vehicles here on our showfloor.

Over at Morrie’s Brooklyn Park Nissan we have quite the impressive lineup of environmentally friendly vehicles, starting with the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid, which is available in 2-wheel, and 4-wheel drive options, and uses a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine and an electric motor paired to a lithium-ion battery.

4. Last year at the New York International Auto Show Subaru introduced their first ever hybrid variant of the popular Crosstrek XV, and Subaru drivers couldn’t have been more excited. We were live in NY to capture all the excitement. The beautiful new XV Crosstrek hybrid is the lowest-emissions, most fuel-efficient All-Wheel Drive hybrid crossover in America. Make sure to stop by Morrie’s Brooklyn Park or Morrie’s Minnetonka Subaru to take one for a no-hassle test-drive!
