The Toyota Yaris Hybrid – Europe’s answer to the Prius C – joins Europcar Car Hire as the perfect choice for visiting London.
Perhaps Europcar should have got the Toyota Yaris Hybrid on to their fleet a little earlier considering the number of visitors in London at the moment? But in future, visitors to London wanting a hire car will be able to opt for the Yaris Hybrid and save themselves London Congestion Charging.
Europcar has added 100 Yaris Hybrids to their fleet, and although we don’t yet know what the weekly tariff for the small Toyota hybrid will be, it’s a no-brainer of a choice for anyone wanting four wheels to trot round London.
With emissions of just 79g/km, the Toyota Yaris Hybrid will save visitors a chunk of money for their stay in town, not just on congestion charge of £10 a day (or £12 if you’re not organised) but the Yaris Hybrid also offers its best economy when subjected to heavy urban traffic – perfect for London.
Europcar already offer ‘Green’ cars for hire in London like the Peugeot iOn and the Nissan LEAF (both under £200 a week) but the Yaris Hybrid offers the best of both worlds – no congestion charge and the ability to pop down to Brighton if the mood takes.
And, however deep your pockets, the Yaris Hybrid makes far more sense for a week long hire in London than anything else.
