ADDITION: Hybrids make Burnt Tree debut
Burnt Tree are adding hybrid cars to their vehicle rental fleet for the first time, after investing in the new Toyota Auris Icon 1.8litre Hybrid E-CVT.
Consisting of both five-door Hatchback and five-door Tourer/Estate models, the automatic hybrids are initially being located at the company’s depots in Heathrow and Purfleet.
They are in the lowest company car tax bracket and qualify for free road tax.
Chris Sharpe, Director at Burnt Tree, said: “By using clever hybrid technology, the Toyota Auris hybrids are really economical, practical vehicles and they are the first ever hybrids to be available through the Burnt Tree branch network.
“We believe that they will be extremely popular additions to our rental and contract hire fleets, especially in the sensitive urban conurbations such as London.”
