Honda hybrid reaches 100,000 miles in three years

A 2010 Honda CR-Z has hit the impressive benchmark of clocking up 100,000 miles in just three years.

The car is part of a 10-strong fleet made up purely of Honda hybrids, also including Jazz and Insight models, which has racked up an amazing half a million miles since 2010.

The fleet is owned and run by Renewable Solutions UK, national award-winning designers and installers of Renewable Energy Systems for business and domestic customers.

With the cars used on a daily basis in its work up and down the country, Mike Lowes, managing director of Renewable Solutions said: "Honda hybrids are a perfect fit for our business, with the efficiency of battery power and the many environmental and financial benefits this brings. The fleet is worked very hard, every day, for both short and long journeys, but we’ve only ever had to pay for standard servicing and wear and tear costs, and no major breakdowns. They just keep going without skipping a beat!"

The fleet has been built up over the last three years with all of the cars bought from Greenacre Honda in Blackburn. Lowes added: "We have complete free rein in what we buy and where we buy it from, so the fact that we stick with Honda is testament to the trust we have in the brand. Honda hybrids are a reliable, no-compromise solution to our needs, and Greenacre have offered us great customer service and value for money."

Lee Wheeler, manager of corporate operations at Honda said: "We know that there are plenty of Honda hybrids out there racking up the miles, but it’s always great to hear directly from customers who are seeing the strong benefits they deliver to fleets, even at mileages higher than usually seen with hybrid cars."
