CHOICE: GMB select Toyota Auris
Britain’s third-largest trade union GMB are set to receive 250 new Auris Hybrid hatchback and Touring Sports models in a new bumper deal with Toyota.
Replacing the current Toyota Prius hybrids, the 1.8litre vehicles achieve respective CO2 emissions of 91g/km and 92g/km, and fuel efficiency figures of 72.4mpg and 70.6mpg.
Both models – which are in the top-of-the-range Excel grade – therefore offer low benefit-in-kind company car tax rates and zero annual road tax (VED).
Paul Kenny, General Secretary of GMB, said: “GMB members have supported the union in its actions to improve its environmental impact, and the move over to the Auris represents one of the largest changes we have made to meet that demand.
“GMB has moved from Prius to the new Auris as the successful hybrid power vehicle will be a useful tool for our organisers in their constant drive to serve GMB members.”
