Toyota to Exhibit at the Motability Scheme’s The Big Event in Manchester

4 May 2016

Toyota will be attending ‘The Big Event’, hosted by the Motability Scheme at EventCity, in Manchester on Friday 13 and Saturday 14 May 2016. Entry is free and will give disabled people and their families the opportunity to find out more about Toyota cars and its hybrid technology. They will also learn how the Motability Scheme works and be able to take a test drive.

Toyota will showcase its hybrid technology in the Yaris, Auris, Auris Touring Sports and new RAV4 models. The Yaris will also feature adaptations suitable for Motability customers. The Verso MPV, a popular choice for Motability customers with its spacious interior and compact exterior dimensions, will complete the line-up.

Visitors will be able to take test drives in the Auris hybrid, accompanied by professional driving instructors, and see for themselves hybrid technology at work. Motability Scheme advisors will be on hand – together with Scheme partners  Kwik Fit, RAC and RSA Motability – to help with any additional information. Advice is also available from The Forum of Mobility Centres and Disabled Motoring UK.

Charlie Holcomb, Manager Public Sector and Mobility for Toyota said: “We are looking forward to exhibiting at The Big Event in Manchester and meeting the visitors that come along. It’s a great opportunity for us to showcase our increasingly popular hybrid technology with a range of models that demonstrate just how diverse this technology can be. The test drives will show how easy it is to use. All the models on view are available to disabled people through the Motability Scheme. Visitors will be able to get all the information they need from Motability experts as well as enjoy a great day out.”
