Driving school car supplier CA Cars has ordered more than 40 Toyota hybrids equipped with dual controls.
Clara Gibson, general manager at CA Cars said: “As a business offering professional advice to potential and existing customers, we are pleased to use Toyota to support our growing operations.
“We are proud to specialise in hybrids and believe Yaris has the ideal characteristics for a reliable and economical driving school car.
"It’s prompted a great reaction from our customers, who appreciate the money they can save on fuel and running costs.”
CA Cars is offering its customers the choice of Yaris Hybrid (automatic as standard) and 1.4 D-4D diesel-powered models with manual transmission, both fitted with dual controls by He-Man.
As an established Toyota customer, it will be extending its business with Auris hatchback models, offered to the driving school market for the first time.
Stuart Ferma, Toyota national fleet sales manager, said: “We are delighted to provide the benefits of Toyota hybrid technology to driving schools and to further develop sales of Yaris Hybrid and Auris into this important market.
"Hybrid engines work at their peak performance at slow speeds, making them a great choice for driving instructors.”
The vehicles have been acquired with assistance from Toyota Financial Services and supplied through Listers Toyota.
