Total Security Services ditches diesel fleet for 70 Toyota C-HR EV hybrid crossovers

Total Security Services Toyota C-HR crossovers.

Total Security Services (TSS) has revealed the replacement of the diesel models in its fleet with 70 self-charging hybrid electric Toyota C-HR crossovers.

The new Toyotas are exclusively for its field-based area management team, and will “reinforce” its professional image when visiting customers and employees while delivering efficiencies.

TSS’s financial director Jamie Caplin said: “As we invest in our national infrastructure, it is vital that our vehicle fleet continues to meet our business requirements.

"The main benefits of the C-HR for us are the additional safety technology, comfort features, economic feasibility and environmentally friendly technical specification, which contributes to reducing our carbon footprint.”

The fleet of C-HR are all finished in Eclipse Black and are top-of-the-range Excel grade models. They have been supplied through Hills Toyota in Woodford, Essex, which has a successful and long-standing business relationship with TSS.

Caplin said: “We were very impressed that the emissions are 87g/km of CO2, a figure which ensures a lower Benefit-in-Kind tax rate for our own people.

"This along with the high specifications of the vehicles which include features such as a Blind Spot Monitor, Parking Sensors with Park Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Lane Departure Alert will help to make journeys for our area managers both safer and more comfortable.

“The Toyota Touch 2 with Go also provides online services and satellite navigation which is highly beneficial for our field team to help with dynamic journey planning, which in turn supports our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint.”
