When you think of chauffeur driven car services you generally visualize a Lincoln Town Car or Cadillac DTS or, in England, a big Jaguar or Mercedes sedan. Now London based car service Pink Express is switching their fleet of over 100 cars over to Toyota Priuses as the leases come up.
With most of their services being offered in central London where congestion is the name of the game hybrids are the ideal solution. No one moves very fast and chauffeurs often sit around waiting their passengers. In addition to the cars, Pink Express is providing all their drivers with training in techniques to maximize fuel economy.
