How does a business make its fleet greener? Choose a Toyota hybrid, of course! That’s precisely what SCC - Europe’s largest independent IT services provider has done – adding Auris Hybrid Touring Sports to its 350-strong fleet of vehicles.
Headquartered in Birmingham, SCC employs more than 2,000 people from 11 UK locations, and many more across Europe. Adding Auris Touring Sports to its fleet will help the firm realise its ambitions to operate a fleet comprised solely of sub-100g/km vehicles.
Steve Deeley, SCC’s fleet manager said: “We have a green-focused culture and look to reflect that in the vehicles that make up our fleet.
“We have seen the Auris Hybrid Touring Sports in particular proving very popular since we introduced it as a user-chooser option for our area managers and engineers. It helps us meet our sub-100g/km ambitions, but it is spacious, practical and comfortable, too. It also comes with tax benefits for the business and for the drivers, which all adds to its appeal.”
The Auris Touring Sports boasts emissions that dip below the magic 100g/km barrier, meaning company buyers benefit from a favourable benefit-in-kind rating of 11 per cent. Zero annual road tax (Vehicle Excise Duty) applies to company and private buyers alike.
The icing on the Auris Touring Sports’ cake is that it’s built in Britain at Toyota Manufacturing UK’s Derbyshire factory and officially returns 76.3mpg on the combined cycle. Clever packaging means that the hybrid system doesn’t encroach on loadspace, with a maximum 1,658 litres available with the rear seats folded – exactly the same as the petrol and diesel models.
