Avis adds 100 Yaris Hybrids to London rental fleet

From launch, the fleet is available from Heathrow and Stansted airports and at locations in central London, but the Yaris Hybrid will eventually be offered across a region spanning from Gatwick to Luton Airport.

Jane Goodwin, Avis UK fleet procurement manager, said: “Yaris scores highly in many respects against our requirements for an inner city hire car; it is easy to drive and reliable. The ultra-low emissions secured by its hybrid system make it a unique proposition in its class in achieving exemption from the London congestion charge.

Stuart Ferma, Toyota national fleet sales manager, added: “We’re confident that the special qualities of Yaris Hybrid – unmatched by any other vehicle in its class – will make it a popular choice with Avis’s customers and prove ideal for London driving.”
