One of the UK’s top suppliers of spares and service for marine gears and propulsion systems is going hybrid…
Marine & Industrial Transmissions Ltd, (MIT) is adding Toyota Prius and seven-seat Toyota Prius+ full hybrid vehicles to their fleet.
The Prius will be used by the Sales Manager and Sales and Marketing Director of MIT on a Europe-wide basis.
Peter Fenton MIT Financial Director commented: “The addition of the Prius vehicles for MIT is part of our overall programme of working towards environmental initiatives. The cars issue came about not just for environmental reasons but because of the cost efficiency such as savings on fuel and tyres, in addition there are corporation tax advantages that currently exist for low CO2 emitting vehicles. These lower emission cars also have the added benefit of lower personal tax”.
Prius represents the reference point for hybrid technology and provides a strong proposition to companies wishing to reduce their emissions as well as their fleet running costs. Combined fuel economy is 72.4 mpg and combined emissions are from 89 g/km of CO2. As a full hybrid, Prius has the ability to travel solely on battery power at lower speed which means it can achieve zero tail pipe emissions and zero fuel consumption.
Based in Queensborough Kent, and Hensall Yorkshire, Marine & Industrial Transmissions Ltd, (MIT) has provided expertise and quality products since 1974.
They have provided and maintained equipment to power products manufactured by the likes of Sunseeker, Irish Rail, Terex, Mustang Marine and the Ministry of Defence.
