Sub-100g/km Toyota hybrids prove popular with SCC user-choosers

The company, which has its headquarters in Birmingham, employs more than 2,000 people from 11 UK locations, and many more across Europe. It runs a 350-strong user-chooser fleet, and is focusing on reducing its carbon footprint by encouraging the take-up of low-emissions vehicles.

The firm has added a number of Toyota hybrids to its fleet through Toyota and Lexus Fleet Services, with the Auris Hybrid Touring Sports proving particularly popular thanks to its official figures of 76.3mpg and 85g/km (with 15-inch wheels), which gives rise to an 11% BiK rating and zero annual road tax.

Steve Deeley, SCC's fleet manager, said: ‘We have a green-focused culture and look to reflect that in the vehicles that make up our fleet.

‘We have seen the Auris Hybrid Touring Sports in particular proving very popular since we introduced it as a user-chooser option for our area managers and engineers. It helps us meet our sub-100g/km ambitions, but it is spacious, practical and comfortable, too. It also comes with tax benefits for the business and for the drivers, which all adds to its appeal.’
