City streets are a familiar environment for the Toyota Prius Plug-in, but the “no compromise” full hybrid with its rechargeable battery has been demonstrating its worth in the remote, wide open spaces of Shetland.
Toyota and Lexus Fleet Services kicked off a new programme of ride and drive events for potential business customers on home ground last week (14 March). It brought more than a dozen of its latest models to Pride Park, home of Derby County, just a few miles from its UK manufacturing base at Burnaston.
One of the UK’s prime suppliers of spares and service for marine gears and associated products for drive line and propulsion systems is adding Toyota Prius and seven-seat Toyota Prius+ full hybrid vehicles to their fleet. The Prius are likely to lead to further hybrid vehicles and possibly the new Proace van later in the year.
