The U.K.’s carsharing company Co-Wheels has expanded its fleet with 80 new Toyota hybrids, including the Ayro, Yaris hybrid and Prius plug-in hybrid, according to a report by EV Fleet World. The vehicles have been acquired on a two- to three-year renewal cycle.
“Our members are attracted by the environmental benefits that can be achieved by using hybrid and low-emissions vehicles,” Richard Falconer, Co-Wheels director, told EV Fleet World. “And we see Toyota as the leading provider of these vehicles. The success we have witnessed to date gives us reason to think that our relationship with Toyota is set to become stronger in the future.”
Co-Wheels operates its carsharing service in more than 40 U.K. locations, including Birmingham, Bristol, Gloucester, Oxford and Newcastle. Members can book cars online and access a vehicle by swiping a smartcard.
