I knew there was a reason I buy Toyotas...

Toyota creates air-purifying shrub

NAGOYA (Kyodo) Toyota Motor Corp. said Thursday it has developed a new species of shrub that absorbs harmful substances in the air. The Kirsch Pink, related to the Cherry Sage shrub, will be sold for 380 yen each by Toyota Roof Garden Co., a Toyota Motor subsidiary, beginning next March.

First-year sales are targeted at 10,000 plants.

The Kirsch Pink is the same as the Cherry Sage, absorbing nitrogen oxide, sulfur dioxide and other air pollutants, but the new shrub is 1.3 times more effective, the automaker said.

The new plant, which bears pink flowers between May and November, also diminishes the urban heat-island effect 1.3 times more than the Cherry Sage, it said.

Yeah, every Toyota I've owned has worked well and I've never had maintenance problems as long as I held up the regular service. I heard Prius sales are skyrocketing. If I had the extra cash, I'd be all over one.
