Pink Express goes green

A London chauffeur fleet has embarked on a programme to go green by replacing its vehicles with hybrids.

The 100-plus fleet is being replaced with Toyota Prius T4 models to help Pink Express meet its environmental targets. It is the firm’s latest green venture after its delivery fleet moved towards LPG vans and low-emission motorbikes. The chauffeur fleet is being replaced as vehicles come up for renewal.

“We’re deeply committed to our overall environmental policy,” said Pink Express sales director Ray Miles-Kingston.

“Our vehicles are stationary or operating at low speeds a lot of the time, and there’s a distinct advantage in using zero-emission cars in such circumstances.”

The cars, which are supplied on full-maintenance contract hire, cover 50,000 to 60,000 miles and are replaced every two years.
