PiwiWiwi goes Hybrid – We have a Prius

Hopefully you’ll have picked up on the fact that we are trying to be as environment-friendly as possible here at PiwiWiwi. Most rentals companies don’t care about the fuel consumption of their vehicles: ‘The customer only chooses by the price of the rental, why should I care?’, is their advice & philosophy. We try to be different. If we are encouraging people to use our vehicles then we should try to encourage them to burn as little fuel as possible in the process. We try hard to offer top-condition, economical vehicles. Our entire fleet are manual transmission because these are far better on fuel than autos.
However, there’s always room for improvement. So we’ve got ourselves a Toyota Prius hybrid to trial. It has many, many things going for it including fantastic economy, space & refinement. Its a little like driving a spaceship. It only runs the engine when it feels it needs to so silence doesn’t mean it’s stalled!
Anyhow, if you’re interested in what’s special about Toyota Prius & hybrid cars in general check here for some links. If you’re interested in renting one, click here to let us know.
Right, I’m off to go check the surf. Silently… 🙂
