Hire a Hybrid For a Healthier Planet

With the cost of fuel going up every other month, motorists are feeling the pinch every time they have to fill up their tank.

Not so with owners of hybrid vehicles, who are seeing drastically reduced fuel consumption numbers while enjoying an eco-conscious way to get around.

Hertz Goes Hybrid

Car rental company Hertz have gone so far as to replace all their account managers’ company cars with the relatively new Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid, a vehicle they now also offer their clients. Toyota are old hands at hybrids, having introduced their Prius 27 years ago.

All their experience has been brought to bear on the Corolla Cross model, and the result is a comfortable and spacious drive with a low carbon footprint.

Hertz is aiming to have a 50% hybrid fleet by 2030, and if the Corolla Cross’s performance is anything to go by, that goal doesn’t at all seem far-fetched.

Where Efficiency Meets Adventure

A dynamic fusion of eco-friendly performance and rugged versatility, the Corolla Cross redefines what it means to drive a hybrid SUV. Hailing from the esteemed Toyota Corolla lineage, this exceptional vehicle combines the iconic reliability of Toyota with a strong commitment to sustainability.

Sleek lines, sculpted curves, and an elevated driving position give the Corolla Cross a sporty appearance, and the well-crafted interior is both functional and stylish.

Under the hood, a petrol and electric motor work together harmoniously (and very quietly!) to deliver smooth and responsive performance despite an economical drive.
