Europcar is now offering the Toyota Prius – “the world’s first and most succesful hybrid vehicle” – from all of its London car rental locations.
Londoners can now enjoy the freedom of car use without impacting on their city’s carbon footprint and without having to pay the London Congestion Charge. The Toyota Prius is exempt from the LCC and can be driven for short distances on electric power only – ideally suited for urban driving.
Toyota is leading the way with hybrid technology and expects to be producing one million hybrid cars per year by early in the next decade. The Toyota Prius was one of the first mainstream hybrids and is by far the most popular and well-established hybrid model on the market at present.
With hybrid technology looking almost certain to be the next big trend in car drivetrain technology, why not rent one for a few days and see what you think?
