The cheapest way to drive a Lexus hybrid?

If paying $100,000+ to drive a Lexus LS600h hybrid is too rich for your blood, well, you're out of luck. But, if you would like to try the not-quite-as-expensive Lexus RX 400h luxury SUV (above) or the GS 450h performance sedan, well, then the UK's Green Motion Vehicle Rental would like to invite you to rent a car from them. Green Motion will soon offer these two Lexus hybrid models "as part of their expansion to their green rental options." If you know that Lexus hybrids aren't really as green an experience as other hybrids and want to see what else Green Motion's got that would qualify them to use the name, check out the low-energy lighting systems and biodegradable chemicals for valeting vehicles

Press Release:

Green Motion Vehicle Rental has become one of the first rental companies in the UK to offer the hire experience of Lexus Hybrids as part of their expansion to their green rental options.

The company will shortly be taking delivery of the Lexus RX 400h luxury 4x4 and GS 450h performance saloon allowing discerning customers the opportunity to hire green luxury vehicles for that special occasion, red carpet event or that all important business presentation. Lexus Hybrids work by combining a petrol engine with an electric motor to help reduce CO2 levels and improve fuel economy. It means that they are able to run solely on electric power at lower speeds meaning that no fuel is used and are therefore emission free.

The founder and Managing Director of Green Motion Vehicle Rental, Richard Lowden, said, "Going green does not mean compromise and we are looking forward to offering our customers the luxury of the Lexus GS and RX hybrid models for rental – we are seeing a clear growth in demand for green luxury hire product with the general public, local government and companies alike demonstrating their commitment to the environment and wishing to play their part in contributing towards the effects of global climate change."

Mark Waite, Manager Lexus Corporate Sales said, "The strong growth of Lexus Hybrids in 2007 is proving how popular this technology has become among business fleets today."

In addition to offering green vehicles for hire, Green Motion also abides by its own all embracing environmental policy which incorporates all aspects of their business from the use of low energy lighting systems and green energy to biodegradable chemicals for valeting vehicles – in short customers can benefit from the opportunity of buying a green service from a green company.

Green Motion now has three locations up and running in Oxford, North London (Palmers Green) and more recently Milton Keynes. For more information on hiring Lexus Hybrid product please contact Green Motion's central reservation centre on 08700 600 600 or alternatively visit
