Car club adds 80 new Toyota hybrids and city cars

The business operates on-street car hire in more than 40 UK locations and also provides fleet management services for numerous organisations. 

The new vehicles are a mixture of new Aygo, Yaris Hybrid and the rechargeable Prius Plug-in hybrid and have been acquired on a two-to-three-year renewal cycle.

The vehicles are finished in Co-wheels’ livery and equipped with a telematics system that enables club members to book cars any time of the day or night and access their vehicle with a simple swipe of their personal smartcard.

Richard Falconer, Co-wheels director, said: ‘Co-wheels is pleased to use Toyota to supply and support our growing car club operation. It has continued to provide us with an excellent delivery service, backed up by very positive after sales input.

‘Our members are attracted by the environmental benefits that can be achieved by using hybrid and low-emissions vehicles, and we see Toyota as the leading provider of these vehicles. The success we have witnessed to date gives us reason to think that our relationship with Toyota is set become stronger in the future.’
