The eco-friendly taxi service based in London, Climatecars, has opted for the all-new Toyota Prius as its choice of fleet vehicle. Already a Toyota customer, the company has been operating Prius since they started business in 2007.
Entrepreneur Nicko Williamson, founder of Climatecars, said, “We have chosen the new Prius due to its lower emissions and practicality as an executive car. Climatecars will take delivery of 10 cars in September and October. Our customers love the previous generation model with many commenting on how quiet the car is and questions about the energy monitor.
"We have used Prius for over two years already and have not had any reliability issues. This new model will continue to satisfy our needs providing our growing client list of over 400 corporate account holders with a quiet comfortable environmentally friendly ride along with our professional service they have come to expect. Climatecars is passionate about delivering the best possible level of service with the lowest emissions and therefore the new Prius is the natural choice for us. Toyota has demonstrated its commitment to emissions reduction with the new Prius.”
Their current fleet of Prius will be replaced over the next two years with the latest generation version of the award winning car and will continue their corporate theme of metallic grey cars with black leather interiors. With class leading figures of 89g/km of CO2 the taxi service is offering consumers the chance to reduce their carbon footprints while using a taxi.
In many ways the Toyota Prius is the perfect London taxi, with and excellent combined mpg figure of 72.4mpg, zero cost road tax, and that all important exemption from the London Congestion Charge.
