Every hybrid model qualifies for free road tax. For individuals with a Toyota hybrid company car, a fantastically low 11% BIK is available.

Will breakdown insurance, with companies like RAC and AA, cover my hybrid vehicle in the case of a breakdown?

Hybrid batteries are designed to last the vehicle through its entire lifetime, but should something happen unexpectedly, your Toyota is covered by a 5 Year Warranty.

90% of emissions generated are produced throughout the driving experience, while a mere 10% of emissions is contributed by productions, shipping, scrapping and so forth. Therefore, it’s clear to see that with efficiency considered, the hybrid battery is the environmentally friendly alternative to your standard petrol/diesel engine.

We can assume that a 30-40% saving in running costs can be achieved per year.
