Give up smoking – and save money

Posted on Aug 5 2014 - 9:22am by Sustainable News

Toyota & Lexus Fleet Services took advantage of No Smoking Day on March 12 to encourage drivers and managers of company vehicles to switch from smoke-emitting diesel to cleaner petrol-electric hybrid power. Neil Broad, General Manager of Toyota & Lexus Fleet Services, said: “Diesel-engine vehicles are a major source of harmful pollution.

With a petrol full hybrid, particulate emissions are entirely eliminated and nitrogen oxide (NOx) levels are on average a tenth of the diesel limit set by the forthcoming Euro 6 legislation.” Petrol hybrids also save thousands of pounds on tax, fuel and whole life costs.

As an example, Toyota & Lexus Fleet Services says that a Lexus CT 200h S will save companies £4,000 in a typical three-year, 60,000 mile cycle compared to a diesel equivalent. The driver will save £2,000 in personal tax.
