National Grid, one of the world’s largest energy companies, has chosen the Toyota Yaris as the preferred car for its UK trainee engineers, taking delivery of 100 vehicles.
Toyota’s UK showrooms are crowded places these days, thanks to the arrival of four new models, and plenty of customers keen to make a purchase. This summer’s introduction of the GT86 sports coupe, Yaris Hybrid, Prius+ and Prius Plug-in have helped boost sales and build interest in Toyota’s range of cars – now 17-strong.
The latest Toyota advanced technology for low emissions and high fuel economy motoring does not come with a prohibitive price tag, particularly for company drivers keen to keep their tax bills low. The new Yaris Hybrid, the first European full hybrid supermini, is expected to cost no more than £25 a month in Benefit-in-Kind tax for business motorists.
The first pictures of Yaris Hybrid have been revealed ahead of the public debut of the car at the Geneva motor show in March.
The new model brings together the ingenious packaging and agile handling of Yaris with the high efficiency and refined driving experience of Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive powertrain.
